Special features:
  • Each superb coin in this 12-coin series is embedded with a genuine, gem-toned Swarovski® crystal embellishment that replicates the colours of the month's birthstone.
  • The engraved elements are beautifully rendered in fine detail to create a collectible piece of art that holds a timeless appeal.
  • A traditional symbol of power and strength, the intricately engraved dragon is positioned over a lotus pattern to symbolize purity of the heart and mind, while the crystal adds the unique virtues it represents.
  • Crafted from 99.99% pure silver.
  • A gorgeous keepsake that celebrates a person's individuality.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited mintage worldwide.

About the Design:

The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group is both visually compelling and richly symbolic, with a thoughtful melding of traditional and contemporary design elements. In the background, a beautifully engraved lotus pattern fills the reverse in a modern take on the blooms that traditionally symbolize purity of the heart and mind. A majestic, mid-relief dragon is brought to life through intricate engraving that recreates it in extraordinary detail; its presence also carries a strong meaning, as the dragon is a time-honoured symbol of power, strength and good luck in Asian mythology. Above it, a traditional circular motif bears a Swarovski® crystal embellishment that represents aquamarine, the birthstone for March, which is said to bring courage and health to those born in the month.

Did you know...
  • "Aquamarine" comes from the Latin words aqua (water) and marine (sea).
  • Its colour is light in tone, and ranges from a greenish blue to a deep blue hue.
  • It is largely mined in Brazil but can also be found in places such as Madagascar, Pakistan and Mozambique.

The serene blue colour of aquamarine, and the gemstone's name itself, speaks of a long association with water. It is a traditional favourite for seafarers, as aquamarine was thought to offer protection and guarantee safe voyage through turbulent waters. To those born in March, this light blue stone brings courage, calmness, health, and a sense of hope that is perfectly in step with the advent of spring!

Packaging:

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

          This will be placed in the neck chain holder that I rec'd from the mint. It is made for that. I'm impressed with the detail and will make a great jewelry piece. Inexpensive for what one receives. This will make a superb gift for any adult, teen, and even adolescent. Excellent coin.

            Again my Birthday present after thinking I was done acquiring Canadian coins. The beautiful design and execution keep me coming back seemingly against my will. This one I will wear on a silver strand.
