According to ancient Chinese mythology, the universe was divided into four quadrants marking the winter and summer solstices, and the autumn and spring equinoxes. These heavenly quadrants were known as the ‘Four Celestial Palaces’, with each palace represented by a guardian animal with a corresponding colour, element, and virtue.

The coin’s reverse portrays the guardians of the Four Celestial Palaces.

Black Tortoise: (Season) Winter - (Element) Water.
Symbolic of longevity, wisdom, knowledge, and reproduction; with no males, females were said to mate with snakes.

Blue Dragon: (Season) Spring - (Element) Wood
A symbol of supreme power; benevolent, just, and the bringer of wealth and good fortune.

Red Phoenix: (Season) Summer - (Element) Fire
Symbolic of resurrection and immortality; appeared in times of good fortune and believed to bring happiness to the people.

White Tiger: (Season) Autumn - (Element) Metal
The king of all animals and the lord of the mountains; a fierce protector with the power to exorcise evil spirits and grant a good harvest.

Represented in vibrant colour, the four Chinese mythical creatures surround a yin yang symbol at the centre of the antiqued coin’s reverse.

January’s birthstone is a fiery red colour that exudes warmth and energy, even on a cold winter day. Garnet is the gem of friendship, loyalty and trust. It is said to bring tranquility and health to those born in the first month of the year. Flanked by three smaller Swarovski® crystals and surrounded by a Celtic art-inspired design, the colourful Swarovski® crystal at the centre is a token of good fortune—not just in your birthday month, but for the whole year. And with the help of a bezel kit (not included), your coin will easily become a cherished piece of jewellery that expresses who you are.

Do you need to find a gift for someone born in January? Then order this gorgeous coin!

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 May ( emerald), 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.

The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box.

With this stunning shaped coin, CIT combines the symbol of a scarab beetle with one of the most famous Pharaohs to ever live, Tutankhamun. His tomb opening celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2022.

In ancient Egyptian religion, the god Ra whose eye is also depicted on the obverse together with the Ankh or Key of Life, rolls the sun across the sky each day, transforming bodies and souls.

Scarab beetles roll dung into a ball. Because of this symbolically similar action, the scarab was seen as a reflection of the heavenly cycle and was representing the idea of rebirth or regeneration. In ancient Egyptian religion, the scarab was also a symbol of immortality, resurrection, transformation and protection much used in funerary art.

Over the ages, scarabs have been used to symbolize wealth, as currency, fashion accessory and also to serve as a form of artistic expression.

Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology this is a numismatic piece of art in a 1 oz silver ultra-high relief with an integrated crystal from Swarovski. It is decorated with two names of Tutankhamun in hieroglyphene style his own individual name and his title as a Pharaoh which was also found on his throne when it was discovered 100 years ago.

If you want everlasting protection or just a nice meaningful gift. This shaped scarab beetle coin will be both.

Eclecticism is about combining or mixing different styles, theories or ideas to gain complementary insights into a subject or topic. We transferred this approach onto a coin which depicts a vibrant fighting fish (also known as Betta fish). This species is known for its bright, beautiful coloration and elaborate fin displays. Fun facts: Fighting fishes are known to recognize their human companions. They will follow your finger around the aquarium and can even be trained to perform tricks!

What makes this piece eclectic? Well, on one hand we have split it into two halves with a mirrored proof finish on one side and silk black finish on the other, giving this coin a stunning contrast. Thanks to the enhanced smartminting® technology the fighting fish itself is set on top of this contrast in ultra-high relief and colorized with an incredibly high level of sophistication which perfectly matches the different backgrounds. Hold this coin into your hand and you want to move it around again and again to discover this amazing animal and how it is depicted on this extraordinary piece. 1 oz proof silver and limited to only 1500.
