This new $3 fine silver coin offers a touching celebration of love through the elegant combination of detailed engraving, multiple finishes, selective colour and a dazzling Swarovski® crystal. Mintage of this coin is limited to 17,500, and as a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.

The Design:

Two Monarch butterflies represent two souls who have found one another, with each one enhanced by the application of colour that recreates their black and orange wings. The butterflies gaze at each other from atop a 6-millimetre, heart-shaped Swarovski® Branded crystal. The crystal itself is symbolic of the nature of love—not just for its shape but also for its sparkling light effect, which seems to brighten everything that surrounds these two souls in love. Both the crystal and the butterflies rise up from a large engraved coneflower (Echinacea), and are surrounded by butterfly bushes, coneflower blooms, and other butterflies in the background—including a distant Tiger swallowtail butterfly on the right.

A glance, a touch, an action or a word: Love is that feeling of selfless joy that cannot be contained. Each loving relationship is unique and universal; whether it’s the bond between lovers, family members or friends, the deep connection between two souls plays an uplifting role in everyday life—an idea that is at the heart of this touching fine silver coin. The reverse is design by  Canadian artist Joel Kimmel.
