Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Meera Sethi, your coin is inspired by the colourful Indian folk art of Rangoli, which traditionally adorns entrances and floors during Diwali. Within the geometric and floral-inspired pattern lie numerous cultural symbols that represent the “Festival of Lights” as a cherished multi-ethnic celebration—one that is very much at home in Canada, where it is celebrated by Indo-Canadians across the country. Roughly 51% of Indo-Canadians reside in the Greater Toronto Area, while Vancouver is home to Canada's second-largest population; these important communities are represented by each province's official floral emblem: the trillium and the Pacific dogwood, respectively. Key spiritual symbols—such as those associated with Sikhism and Jainism—surround a ring of clay diya, which light up homes and hearts during Diwali. The most widely known Canadian symbol, the beloved maple leaf, forms an inner ring around the sacred symbol “OM”—that eternal sound of creation—which is positioned in the centre to release spiritual energy in all directions.
