Description

A harbinger of spring, the swallow is a joyful symbol of success, happiness and familyÑall key elements for a life of harmony, a most benevolent blessing to bestow upon a friend or loved one. This scallop-shaped, gold-plated fine silver coin carries a joyous message which invites peace and balance into the life of its recipient.

The coin is dated 2018 with a $15 denomination and weighs over three quarters of an ounce of pure silver. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 4,888. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

On the fully gold-plated reverse, the stylized image by Aries Cheung centers on a pair of swallows, a beloved bird that represents harmonyÑin love, in families and the community, and in nature itself. This migratory bird is traditionally revered as a symbol of spring, thus it is shown with plum blossoms, whose five petals symbolize the Five Blessings: longevity, fortune, health, virtue and dying a natural death. The birds and flowers bask in the warming rays of the sun, which bears the Chinese characters for ÒharmonyÓ. The face value Ò15 DOLLARSÓ, the year Ò2018Ó, the word ÒCANADAÓ and the Chinese characters for ÒCANADAÓ are all engraved within the outer band that frames the image field. The gold-plated obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
