Sparkling in a dizzying array of hues, gemstones have captivated and fascinated humankind throughout our history! Theirs is a timeless beauty that has been valued by cultures around the world, giving rise to beliefs and legends about the unique virtues and mystical powers they possess.

Today, gemstones continue to carry a special significance as birthstones, whose attributes may be heightened during the month they represent. There is an undeniable mystique to these natural works of art, with colours that make them as distinct and unique as those who cherish them!

A deeply meaningful gift for any occasion to let someone know how much you treasure them! Order your coin today!

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 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.

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

    Comments about Fine Silver Coin with Swarovski® Crystal – Birthstones: January – Mintage: 3000 (2016):

    Way too expensive it is only 1/4 oz... and swarovski crystals are cheap to produce due to the large scale loose crystals and not that much beautiful. Still a very nice coin but please 1) make it 1 oz, 2) with an acceptable price tag of about CAD120, 3) with a blue Saphir or Emerald instead.
    Thank you and long live to the Royal Canadian Mint !

      Coin has a lot of detail for it's size.
      I just hope the rest of the coins are as detailed as this one. Very nice set to have complete.
      Would be nice if this came with a box to hold all the coins in the collection.
