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 a ruby, the birthstone for July, which is said to bring nobility and beauty to those born in the month.

  • The ruby is a variety of gems called "corundum," which are harder than any other natural gemstone (except the diamond).
  • A ruby's colour is its most important value, with medium-dark red being highly prized; if a ruby is too light, or has excessive purple or orange tints, it is known instead as a fancy-colour sapphire.
  • The ruby was the most valuable gem in ancient Southeast Asia, where it is still found today.

The vibrant, almost blood-red shade of a ruby makes it a fitting gemstone to represent love and passion, and is one of the world's most unique gems. To those born in the hot summer month of July, rubies are a symbol of zeal that is said to offer fortune, beauty, nobility and love. Ancient cultures also believed it had protective powers that could ward off evil.

Packaging:

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