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 garnet, the birthstone for January, which is said to bring constancy and loyalty to those born in the month.

Did you know…
  • “Garnet” comes from the word "granatum", meaning “seed,” which is fitting given its resemblance to a pomegranate seed.
  • We generally associate garnet with red, but it is also available in a wide array of colours!
  • Today, garnet is largely found in Africa, Sri Lanka and India.

Garnet's beautiful red colour blazes bright as the birthstone for the cold winter month of January. To those born in January, garnet brings friendship, constancy, trust and loyalty. It has also been said to bring tranquility, good health and provide safety to its owner during any travel.

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