Special features:
  • SEVENTH COIN IN 12-COIN SERIES! Your coin is the seventh in the monthly series that combines complex engraving, selective colour and a gem-toned crystal for a sparkling celebration of each birth month!
  • FEATURES A GENUINE SWAROVSKI® CRYSTAL! Each coin features a genuine Swarovski® crystal that represents each month’s birthstone and its colour.
  • STUNNING COLOUR! Selective colour extends the celebration to the engraved elements emanating from your coin’s centre.
  • BEAUTIFULLY ENGRAVED! The mandala’s layered pattern is beautifully engraved in outstanding detail—including the mid-relief lotus that naturally draws your eye!
  • INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE! The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.
  • LOW MINTAGE! Limited to 4,000 coins worldwide.
  • PURE SILVER! Your coin is crafted from 99.99% pure silver.


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 July birthstone, ruby. 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…
  • The ruby is actually a variety of gems called “corundum,” which are harder than any other natural gemstones—except the diamond.
  • A ruby’s colour is its most important value, with medium-dark red being highly prized. If a ruby is too light, or has excessive purple or orange tints, it is known instead as a fancy-colour sapphire.
  • The ruby was the most valuable gem in ancient Southeast Asia, where it is still found today.


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

July Swarovski crystal


It was a great gift




yes if i got instructions with it


nice and good for birthdays but if you send no directions I have no idea how to assemble it, a little on the pricey side

The red colour is peeling off.


After a month the red colour started to peel off.




Much Too Small


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.
