  • CANADIAN TWIST ON PATTERNED INLAY THAT FAMOUSLY ADORNS THE TAJ MAHAL! The outermost ring offers a Canadian twist on the patterned inlay that famously adorns the Taj Mahal, using intricately engraved trilliums and Pacific dogwood blossoms to represent Canada's largest Indo-Canadian populations in Toronto, Ont., and Vancouver, B.C.
  • REFLECTS A SPIRIT OF INCLUSION! Alongside these provincial floral emblems is Canada's own iconic national symbol, the maple leaf, which reflects a spirit of inclusion and the thriving cultural diversity that defines this nation.
  • CAPTURES THE LUMINOUS ESSENCE OF FESTIVAL OF LIGHTS! Symbols from the Hindu, Sikh and Jain faiths form a series of rings that frame the centre, where the silvery shine of the engraved clay lamp (diya) poignantly captures the luminous essence of this ancient tradition known as the Festival of Lights.
  • MULTIPLE FINISHES! Beautifully rendered in finely detailed engraving and enhanced with multiple finishes, which add an unmistakable dimension to every aspect of this ornate design.
  • LOW MINTAGE! The coin's low mintage of 8,500 worldwide makes this a must-have collectible.
  • A DEEPLY MEANINGFUL GIFT! Your coin marks the most treasured of all Indian celebrations, to be cherished and valued by generations to come!
  • ONE-OUNCE 99.99% PURE SILVER COIN! Your coin is GST/HST exempt!

Design:

Inspired by the elaborate patterns of Indian textiles, ornamentation and mandalas, your coin was designed by Canadian artist Sarindar Dhaliwal. It presents a visually stunning celebration of Diwali as a cherished multicultural tradition in several communities across Canada.

Alongside these provincial floral emblems is Canada's own iconic national symbol, the maple leaf, which reflects a spirit of inclusion and the thriving cultural diversity that defines this nation. Symbols from the Hindu, Sikh and Jain faiths form a series of rings that frame the centre, where the silvery shine of the engraved clay lamp (diya) poignantly captures the luminous essence of this ancient tradition known as the Festival of Lights.

        Comments about 1 oz. Pure Silver Coin – Diwali: Festival of Lights – Mintage: 8500 (2016):

        When I first saw the Diwali coin, as a crafter of double-sided coin rings, it really spoke to me. Such a beautiful, intricate design would look amazing as a coin ring. I bought two, one for my bullion collection, and one to make a ring from. The ring turned out amazing, and the lapel pin made from the 9/16" plug i punched out of the center of the coin, looks great.
