Buy 2018 1/4 oz Silver Coin - Birthstone - December .9999
The collection is complete! The pure silver ¼ oz December Birthstone coin is the last in the 12 coin birthstone series from the Royal Canadian Mint. The December birthstone is tanzanite. Tanzanite is prized for its scarcity and distinctive cool color. Ranging from a pale violet-blue to a deeper shade of blueish purple, the stone also appears to change color depending on the angle and the type of the light hitting the stone. Like with the other pure silver coins in this series, the December birthstone silver coin features a genuine Swarovski® crystal that represents the tanzanite stone.
While it’s official scientific name is blue-violet zoisite, it was dubbed tanzanite by Tiffany & Co for the country in which it was discovered in the late 1960’s, Tanzania. Tanzanite is actually solely found in Tanzania and is mined in a very small 2 km wide mining area near the Merelani Hills, making this birthstone extra unique. This .9999 silver coin with tanzanite inspired Swarovski® crystal would make the perfect gift for a December wedding or anniversary, or a truly unique baby shower gift for a baby being born in December. December birthdays are often forgotten with their proximity to the holidays. Let someone you love know that you are thinking of them on their December birthday by gifting them this special 1/4 oz Silver Coin .9999 - December Birthstone. Tanzanite is a calming stone and it is said to bring wisdom, balance and health to all who are born in December.
The obverse of the coin features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by artist Susanna Blunt. On the reverse, a selective application of color complements the violet Swarovski® crystal , soft and vivid tones highlight the layered engraved artistry. Canadian artist Pandora Young created the mandala lotus design on the reverse on this beautiful pure silver coin, with the 12 points of the mandala representing the 12 months of the year.
