Description

This 2020 $5 proof fine silver February coin features a sparkling purple amethyst coloured Swarovski® crystal at the centre, flanked by three smaller clear Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design. The coin is dated 2020 with a $5 denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver.  Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 5,000.  HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse design by artist Pandora Young is an intersection of art and mathematics, and features a stylized pattern arranged according to the base-six system. Inspired by the Celtic triskele, the engraved art incorporates three clear Swarovski® crystals into our birthstone celebration of those born in February (amethyst), as represented by the gem-like Swarovski® crystal at the centre of the coin. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


February (Amethyst):

February’s birthstone, amethyst, is the most precious form of quartz. It is the colour of royalty (purple) and is said to represent dignity and piety. A powerful stone, amethyst is said to bring courage and tranquility to all who celebrate a birthday this month.
