The pure silver August Birthstone coin is the eighth silver coin in the 12 coin birthstone series. The Peridot birthstone coin, like the other silver coins in this wonderful series from the Royal Canadian Mint, features a genuine Swarovski® crystal to represent the month’s birthstone – in August, a cool lime green peridot.
In the lazy summer days of August, everyone appreciates the cooling green of shady trees and refreshing summer drinks. The August birthstone, peridot, has a soothing green color perfect for summer. A symbol of prosperity and good fortune, the green peridot has been called the “Evening Emerald”, because it sparkles at any time of day. This pure silver coin with its peridot colored Swarovski® crystal is a perfect birthday present in August. With its symbolism of prosperity, it is also a great wedding present or wedding shower gift for an August marriage. Do you need a birthday present for an August baby? This fine silver coin with its peridot birthstone theme makes a memorable and collectible birthday gift or a truly unique baby shower present.
Each of the 12 silver coins in this collectible fine silver coin series features the same 12 pointed mandala style lotus design, with a Swarovski® crystal added. The Royal Canadian Mint worked with Canadian artist Pandora Young and the ancient Indian tradition of henna tattoos, called mehndi, to inspire the design. The 12 points in the lotus represent each of the 12 months of the year, while the Swarovski® crystal represents the month’s birthstone on each finely minted pure silver collectible coin.
There is limited production of these beautiful and collectible gift coins, only 4,000 made for worldwide consumption. This means that they are likely to sell out quickly. Each 2018 1/4 oz Silver Coin - Birthstone - August .9999 comes to you in an acrylic capsule, with an attractive clamshell gift box featuring the Royal Canadian Mint logo.
