This 2020 $5 proof fine silver April birthstone coin is the fourth coin in a series that features a sparkling Swarovski® crystal at the centre, flanked by three smaller clear Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design. The coin is dated 2020 with a $5 denomination and weighs just over one quarter ounce of pure silver. Adding to its collectability, the mintage is extremely limited to just 5,000. HST/GST exempt.
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 April (diamond), 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.
April’s birthstone is a highly prized gem. The symbol of everlasting love, a diamond is one of nature’s strongest materials. As a birthstone, it is believed to protect innocence and strengthen both body and soul.
