This 2017 $3 proof fine
silver LIBRA coin is part of a zodiac series that features sparkling Swarovski®
crystal embellishments within a colour-over-engraved rendition of the zodiac. The zodiac has a long, rich history that dates back to Hellenic
and Babylonian civilizations, when astrology and astronomy were virtually inseparable.
Today, its 12 signs entertain, intrigue or inspire millions of people
worldwide. This is a perfect collectible
or gift for those born from September 23
to October 22.
The coin is dated 2017 with a $3
denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is
extremely limited to just 5,500. As a
pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST
The reverse design by Pandora Young
features an eye-catching combination of colour and engraving that results in a
beautifully artistic rendition of the zodiac. Like
the stars and planets in the sky, a clear Swarovski® crystal embellishment is in alignment
with a traditional glyph representing a scale—the zodiac symbol for Libra
(September 23–October 22). At the center is a larger Swarovski® crystal embellishment; its green colour
also represents those born under the Air sign known for fair-mindedness, grace,
cooperation and diplomacy. The
obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
A sterling silver chain and bezel kit is available to purchase separately under item number BEZEL00127.
