2016 CA Silver Dragon Birthstones Swarovski® Crystal July (Ruby Color) $5 Proof Royal Canadian Mint Review by our bullion specialists
This coin shines with the vibrant, blood-red colour of a ruby to ensure people born at the height of summer have all the energy they need to enjoy the season to its fullest. The ruby is believed to bring beauty, fortune and nobility. It's one of the world's most unique gems and has an ancient reputation for warding off unfriendly forces-an original birthday gift they'll treasure forever! A deeply meaningful gift for any occasion to let someone know how much you treasure them! Design: The reverse design by Three Degrees Creative Group is both visually compelling and richly symbolic, with a thoughtful melding of traditional and contemporary design elements. In the background, a beautifully engraved lotus pattern fills the reverse in a modern take on the blooms that traditionally symbolize purity of the heart and mind. A majestic, mid-relief dragon is brought to life through intricate engraving that recreates it in extraordinary detail; its presence also carries a strong meaning, as the dragon is a time-honoured symbol of power, strength and good luck in Asian mythology. Above it, a traditional circular motif bears a Swarovski® crystal embellishment that represents a ruby, the birthstone for July, which is said to bring nobility and beauty to those born in the month. Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. A gorgeous keepsake that celebrates a person's individuality.
- Each superb coin is embedded with a genuine, gem-toned Swarovski® crystal embellishment that replicates the colours of July's birthstone, the Ruby.
