2022 Australia Diwali 24K Gilded Silver Medallion
The Perth Mint is pleased to present this 1oz silver gilded medallion to celebrate Diwali.
The medallion’s reverse portrays a representation of Lakshmi sitting on a lotus flower, the symbol of enlightenment. An intricate halo design and hanging lanterns surround the goddess, while coins from her palm tumble into a bowl. Also included in the design is the inscription ‘happy diwali’, the medallion’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
The medallion’s obverse portrays Ganesha sitting on a cushion surrounded by the same halo motif, lanterns and the inscription ‘happy diwali’. The god is attended by a mouse, one of his traditional mounts, who offers a sweet as a symbol of generosity.
The medallion is housed in a contemporary latex case within a beautifully illustrated shipper and is accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.
