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 opal, the birthstone for October, which is said to faithfulness and confidence to those born in the month. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

  • The word “opal” is derived from the Greek word opallos, which roughly means “to see a change of colour.”
  • It is sometimes referred to as the “Queen of Gems” for its ability to encompass all the colours of the world's gemstones.
  • Today, opals are largely found in Australia.
  • Ranging from a milky white to a gorgeous sparkle of multiple colours, the opal boasts a luminous appearance and varying colour combinations that make each gemstone as unique as your fingerprints. It is said to be good for vision, and for sharpening spirits and mind. As the birthstone for those born in October, opal is a beautiful symbol of purity, fidelity and confidence.

Packaging:

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

      This was supposed to be a gift for an adult born in October in the Year of the Dragon. I am disappointed in the crystal and so I am not sure if I will I give it as a gift even though I like the dragon design.
