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 December birthstone, tanzanite. 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…
  • Tanzanite was discovered in the late 1960s.
  • In 2002, it was officially designated as one of the birthstones for the month of December (there are three in total).
  • Tanzanite is relatively rare and is found only in the Merelani Hills in Tanzania, for which it is named.

Packaging:

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

Much Too Small. It's Tiny!

1

I bought this to give as a gift and returned it because it's just much too small. (I was intending to buy the whole year's worth to display but wanted to see what they looked like first.) Although it looks lovely on a computer screen, in actuality it's tiny. And I mean doll-house or child-small. And it's just much too small to give as a gift. It is made of silver, not gold, so I'm not sure why RCM is scrimping on the size. These should be at least as large as the standard Silver Maple Leaf coin (which is 38mm). I thought that at 27mm it's only 11mm smaller and maybe it will still look nice. But at 27 it's just a little bigger than the top part of your thumb. It's just not substantial enough to display or to give as a respectable gift. The design is absolutely gorgeous though and it would be magnificent at 38mm. Design wise it's much nicer than the last year's astrological series. The presentation is well done, as we've come to expect from RCM. But no matter how lovely the box or the capsule, the item itself is just much, much too small. Perhaps it would be a nice gift for a child of 5-8, but it's too tiny for an adult gift. And unless someone is a real coin-lover an adult is most likely not going to wear it as a pendant because there are so many beautiful jewelry silver birthstone pendants out there that are made with real precious stones and don't cost all that much more than this coin. Only real coin-lovers or grandmas who get this as a gift from a grandchild will wear a very tiny coin like this as a pendant. That's my humble opinion for what it's worth. RCM Product Development - I hope you're reading this. Please consider making this much larger and charging a little more. It would be a great gift in a larger size and I would happily pay more for the extra weight and size and would think others would as well. Or perhaps you can make 2 sizes - a small one for children or for wearing and then a much larger one for coin display and adult gifts.

December Birthstone - Swarovski Crystals

This coin was a perfect gift for my dear older friend who has everything. She is American and lives in the southern US so I know that she has never seen anything like this before. I think that I must have probably overlooked where I could have had it sent to her directly. On my next order I will look to try and find out how I can have my gifts sent directly bu you, if that's even possible, It's a lovely coin, thank you.
