A glittering diadem dripping with pearls, the Lover’s Knot Tiara is one of the most recognizable heirlooms in the royal jewellery collection. Its diamond-covered knots and drop-shaped pearls are the inspiration for this exquisitely engraved 2021 $250 fine gold tribute, which has a weight of about two ounces of gold and features a four-effigy obverse in honour of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II’s 95th birthday. Embedded on the coin’s reverse, three natural freshwater pearls and seven sparkling diamonds complete our interpretation of the tiara. But there’s a hidden meaning: these are beautiful birthday gemstones, with diamonds representing Her Majesty’s actual birthday in April, and pearls for the official celebration in June. A rare opportunity to own a dazzling diamond-and-pearl birthday celebration. Mintage is extremely limited to 175. 

The Design:

Your coin’s reverse features an interpretation of the Lover’s Knot Tiara. Seven diamonds add sparkle to the engraved knot and arch motif, while three natural freshwater pearls resemble the tiara’s suspended gems. The intricate arrangement is enhanced with selective platinum plating. The commemorative obverse features scroll flourishes and the four effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1953.

The Lover’s Knot Tiara:

This famous tiara is also known as Queen Mary’s Lover’s Knot Tiara, for it was Queen Mary who commissioned it from the House of Garrard in 1913. Modelled after the original Cambridge Lover’s Knot Tiara worn by her grandmother and aunt, Queen Mary’s version of the tiara is made from diamonds and pearls that once adorned the Ladies of England Tiara. The regal headpiece was passed down to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1953; it was later loaned to Diana, Princess of Wales, and has been frequently worn by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge.
