Description

Ornamented with a genuine turquoise gemstone, this 99.99% pure gold coin is a gleaming homage to Iranian cultural traditions, from today to those of Ancient Persia and beyond, represented by Eslimi patterns, Shah Abbasi flower motifs, Persepolis lotus flowers, stylized maple leaves and a paisley motif in the center. These varied elements come together on the coin’s reverse, where the balanced symmetry and stirring symbolism is meant to inspire, to urge us to transcend our perceived limits, and to find inner peace and tranquility.

 

The reverse design by Canadian artist Soheila Esfahani features a turquoise gemstone surrounded by engraved patterns that celebrate the cultural heritage of Iranian Canadians, from today to those of Ancient Persia and beyond. While a paisley motif surrounds the gemstone centrepiece, a repeating maple leaf (symbolizing Canadian identity) and lotus flower (inspired by the reliefs of Persepolis) form a continuous circular pattern that also incorporates a Shah Abbasi floral motif and Eslimi patterns from traditional carpet designs. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins throughout the reign of the Queen, as well as the double dates of her reign.
