2020 Canadian Birthstones Series - February Proof Silver Coin with Swarovski® Crystals
We’re making birthdays extra special with our 12-part birthstone celebration! At the heart of every coin is a large gem-toned Swarovski® crystal that represents a birth month.
Four Swarovski® crystals are embedded on this coin: three small clear ones within the engraved pattern, and a larger one that adds more colourful sparkle than the actual birthstone.
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 February, 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.
