A beautifully engraved silver five dollar coin, featuring a genuine Swarovski® crystal

The Royal Canadian Mint starts 2018 with a delightful silver coin to celebrate those born in January. It's the first in a stunning monthly series that combines complex engraving, selective colour and a crystal on 99.99% pure silver.

The birthstone coin was created by artist Pandora Young and features a henna-inspired mandola motif.  The design was inspired by the Indian art of mehndi. The intricate and ornate shapes and symbols depict a 12-point radial pattern that represents the calendar year. The pattern is selectively coloured to match the crystal at the centre.

Emanating from the centre is a simple yet elegant lotus motif. Within, a gem-toned Swarovski crystal represents the garnet, the blood red birthstone for January. The coin is housed in a classic Royal Canadian Mint clam-shell display box and comes with a number Certificate of Authenticity.

The mint has only issued 4,000 coins worldwide - an extremely low mintage for such a popular theme.

It's perfect treat for yourself or a silver birthday gift for a loved one.
