Design:

Designed by Pandora Young, your coin presents a cross-cultural celebration inspired by the ancient tradition of Indian mehndi. A symmetrical arrangement of highly ornate shapes and symbols form a 12-point radial pattern that reflects the calendar year. A prominent henna motif—the lotus—is among the finely detailed elements that emanate from the centre, where a colourful Swarovski® crystal represents the August birthstone, peridot. A selective application of colour complements the stone, while the playful contrast between soft and vivid tones highlights the layered complexity of the engraved artistry. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Peridot is one of the few gems that occurs in just one colour. However, hues can vary from yellow-green to brown, while the most popular are lime and olive green.
  • Today, peridot is found in Arizona, as well as China, Myanmar, and Pakistan.
  • In Hawaii, peridot is thought to symbolize the tears of the goddess of fire and volcanoes, Pele.

Packaging:

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