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 tanzanite, the birthstone for December, which is said to bring wisdom and health to those born in the month. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

  • One of the most recent additions to the world of gemstones, Tanzanite was discovered in the late 1960s.
  • In 2002, it was officially designated as one of the birthstones for the month of December (there are three in total).
  • Tanzanite is relatively rare, found only in the Merelani Hills in Tanzania, for which it is named.
  • Ranging from pale violet-blue to a deeper hue, tanzanite is prized for its scarcity and distinctive colour. It is a calming stone, one that is said to bring balance, wisdom and health to those born in this month.
