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.

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 emerald, the birthstone for May, which is said to bring happiness and fertility to those born in the month.

  • "Emerald" is from the Greek word smaragdus, which means "green."
  • Emerald was mined in Ancient Egypt but today, it is mined in Colombia, Brazil, Afghanistan and Zambia.
  • It is the traditional and modern gift for those celebrating a 55th wedding anniversary.

Prized for its mesmerizing green colour, the emerald is one of the most valuable gems in the world and also one of its rarest. As the birthstone for the flowering month of May, it is a symbol of rebirth and love and is believed to bring foresight, fortune, happiness and fertility.

Packaging:

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