Description

This 2020 $5 proof fine silver August birthstone coin is the eighth coin in a series that features a sparkling 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 August (peridot), 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.

August (Peridot):
Although peridot is one of the few gems to occur in just one colour, its green hue may vary from yellow-green to olive. This birthstone symbolizes strength and power. It also brings friendship, influence and protection to those born in August.
