To develop the Birthstone series of fine silver collectible coins, the Royal Canadian Mint reached out to Canadian artist Pandora Young. She developed each coin based on an Indian mandala design. Each of the 12 points on the motif represents one of the 12 months of the calendar year. The latest in minting technology ensures that the Royal Canadian Mint's technical team can add detailed color to each freshly minted coin, to match the birthstone of each month. The final step in production of each coin is the addition of a genuine Swarovski® crystal. The crystal reflects the color and design of the gemstone for each month - in July the beautiful ruby.
