UNIQUE: Your coin is packaged in a unique wooden case enhanced with gold foil design. Order today!

Diwali is the most important holiday in India. It's a New Year's celebration that is also known as the "Festival of Lights," and is celebrated by millions of people every year. The notion of light triumphing over dark is incredibly symbolic; so universal that it has inspired cultures around the world for centuries. But Diwali is more than a single flame; it fills homes, streets—and hearts!—with light. Diwali revellers are an incredibly diverse ethno-cultural group. Hindu, Sikh, Jain… every faith has its own Diwali legends, but the unifying thread is always a celebration of good triumphing over evil.

This stunning coin showcases elaborate patterns that typify Indian design. The outermost ring is inspired by an inlay from the Taj Mahal, while trilliums and Pacific dogwood blossoms represent the cities of Toronto (Ontario) and Vancouver (British Columbia), where the largest populations of Indo-Canadians reside.

A stunning keepsake that will become a cherished family heirloom to enrich Diwali celebrations for generations to come. Order yours today!

Special features:
  • Breathtaking in 99.99% pure gold, your coin captures the shimmering essence of the Festival of Lights.
  • Expertly crafted with multiple finishes that bring exceptional detail, dimension and shine to this unique design.
  • An elaborate and ornate design that echoes beauty and symbolism coming together, mirroring the multicultural fabric of Canada.
  • With over a million Indo-Canadians now living in Canada, Diwali is celebrated in communities from coast to coast, enriching the multi-cultural experience of their residents and shining a bright light on Canada as a place of hope and freedom to share one's customs and beliefs.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt and has a limited worldwide mintage.

About the Design:
East and West come together in this stunning design by Canadian artist Sarindar Dhaliwal that celebrates Diwali with elaborate patterns that typify Indian textiles, ornamentation and mandalas. A diya (clay lamp) at the coin's centre reflects the essence of the Festival of Lights while symbols from the Hindu, Sikh and Jain faiths form a series of rings around it.

The outermost ring is inspired by an inlay from the Taj Mahal but consists of Canadian symbols. Trilliums and Pacific dogwood blossoms represent the cities of Toronto (Ontario) and Vancouver (British Columbia) where the nation's largest populations of Indo-Canadians reside. Canada's national symbol, the maple leaf, is also present. Maple trees deliver one of the most brilliant displays in autumn, which is a novel delight for many new immigrants to Canada. The maple's changing colour announces the coming dark days of winter, and in its own way, symbolizes the interplay between light and dark that is the essence of Diwali.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a unique wooden case enhanced with gold foil design and includes a graphic beauty box.
