One of the last diamonds sourced from the Victor Mine! Order today!

In partnership with Crossworks Manufacturing, your coin is a made-in-Ontario treasure and a true showpiece in every sense. Its jewellery-themed design features layers of ultra high relief engraving that lift and surround the undisputed star of this piece: a square-cut 0.20 carat Forevermark Black Label diamond. Marked by the promise of beauty, rarity and responsible sourcing, Black Label is cut with supreme symmetry to unleash the dazzling light of a Forevermark diamond. This rare, precious stone is also a piece of our mining history: it is one of the last diamonds sourced from the Victor Mine in Northern Ontario before its closure.

"Five years of research and design went into the development of the Forevermark Black Label Square diamond that adorns each coin. We never could have imagined this diamond would be so stunningly represented in a piece that is both breathtaking and everlasting. The collaboration between Crossworks Manufacturing and the Royal Canadian Mint is a little like a natural diamond: it is precious and rare. And the fruit of that partnership is a timeless, one-of-a-kind masterpiece like none other—a true work of art, imbued with the sparkle of a patented shaped, responsibly sourced Canadian Forevermark Black Label Square diamond." Itay Ariel, HRA Group/Crossworks Manufacturing

"With this design, we focused on interpreting the elegant geometry by translating it into the circular shape of a coin. We looked at the diamond cut to see how the top and bottom patterns combine to reflect and refract the light. This is our artistic interpretation of the effect while simultaneously presenting the coin as a precious piece of jewellery." Rosina Reid, Three Degrees Creative

Design:
Designed by Three Degress Creative, your jewellery-themed coin features multiple layers of geometric shapes engraved in ultra high relief. The arrangement is an artistic interpretation of a diamond's brilliance; it was inspired by the 0.20 ct. square-cut Forevermark diamond embedded at the centre of the design. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

"Modelling an ultra high relief coin is always a challenge. To ensure the coin can be easily released from the die inside the press, the engraver has to add a draft (angle) to the relief. But controlling the draft becomes a constant battle since it spreads considerably as the relief climbs higher. Also, the pocket for the diamond is quite deep on this coin. We decided to cut as a direct die instead of cutting a matrix (negative image) then hobbing a punch (positive image) and a die (negative image). It meant that I had just one chance to refine the die instead of three." Matt Bowen, Engraver, Royal Canadian Mint

Did you know…
  • Opened in 2008, the Victor Mine was Ontario's first commercial diamond mine. The open pit mine is located in the remote James Bay lowlands, near the coastal community of the Attawapiskat First Nation. It was known for producing diamonds of exceptional clarity.
  • This flawless square-cut diamond features symmetrical facets that perfectly align to maximize the sparkle. The patented cut is exclusive to Crossworks Manufacturing Ltd., a Canadian company that is the top diamantaire in North America.
  • In their constant pursuit of absolute beauty, every Forevermark diamond underges a journey of rigorous selection.  This is why less than 1% of the world's diamonds are worthy of the Forevermark inscription – their promise of beauty, rarity and responsible sourcing.

"This design represents the culmination of artistry, innovation and elegant beauty. It is the product of a three-part partnership through which the heirloom craftsmanship of the Royal Canadian Mint was bound together with the timelessness of an exclusive patented Canadian precious gemstone: a diamond from Forevermark, the diamond brand from De Beers Group, with the slogan "A Diamond Is Forever" representing sentiment and eternity. The partnership between Crossworks Manufacturing, Forevermark and the Royal Canadian Mint is a reflection of these principles; it is an opportunity to bring to our customers and the world a piece of art that will stand the test of time." Humara Rana, Director, Product Strategy and Management, Royal Canadian Mint
