WORLD'S FIRST! First coin in the world enhanced with a drusy stone! Order yours today!

The sparkle of drusy stone conjures many delightful images: fresh powder snow, sweet sugar, and stardust. It is a natural crystal that forms on mineral surfaces, most commonly on quartz and agate. Usually found inside geodes or in larger mineral deposits, it has become a highly coveted semi-precious stone popular among jewellers. Its appeal lies primarily in its stunning sugar-like surface—the result of thousands of tiny faceted crystals on the surface of the stone. But quartz colours like the soft tone of the stone on this coin are rare and highly valued by jewellers and collectors.

A beautiful gift for someone who enjoys coins that are unique! Order yours today!

Special features:
  • WORLD'S FIRST! Never before has a drusy stone embellishment been included on a coin. Highly sought after in the jewellery market, crystal-encrusted drusy stone makes its global coin debut at the Royal Canadian Mint.
  • EACH COIN IS UNIQUE! Only a very small portion of fine drusy quartz has the rich tones selected for your coin—each is unique!
  • The stone is set within a striking Art Nouveau-inspired design captured in painstaking detail with exquisite engraving and shading.
  • LOW MINTAGE: Low mintage of only 4,000 means this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin features a central maple leaf shaped drusy stone set within a circle of engraved maple leaves. Designed by Mr. Bianco to highlight the autumnal beauty and textural depth of the drusy stone, the dynamic engraved background features a swirling torrent of painstakingly engraved maple leaves. This central image is encircled by Art Nouveau-inspired scrollwork that lends the coin a distinctly jewellery-like feel.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

    Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin – Majestic Maple Leaves With Drusy Stone – Mintage: 4000 (2016):

    I bought two coins, one from the Mint and another online. The mint one has an orange druzy with black flecks, and the druzy maple is off-centre and skewed to the right, by approximately 45 degrees. Not sure if anyone else has received a coin with an error like this and if it increases the value or not? The other is light cream coloured with no flecks, and perfectly centered. Both are unique!

          This coin is better in the hand than any pictures I had seen previously. The druzy leaf is like a small, thick slab of maple sugar. Under a loupe, its cream-coloured striations are very attractive. The coin's swirling and wavy detail is a beautiful backdrop to the one-of-a-kind stone leaf.

            although the stone is not as dark as it appears in the
            picture it does have a sparkle and is very detailed.
            An unusual coin with fairly low mintage. I am sure I will enjoy it

                This is a great first by the Mint, it displays well and is eye catching. The only issue I have is that the maple leaf though from the face is uniform, it's depth is not even throughout the coin.
