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.

Tri means "three" in Latin and Greek, and it is the number of petals, sepals and leaves (bracts) that form each white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum). Ontario's odourless provincial flower is a spectacular sight in late April through May, when it blooms en masse and blankets the forest floor. Canada's most populous province was one of the first to enter Confederation in 1867, and that's why its floral emblem is the first one featured in our 13-coin series. Ontario officially adopted its floral emblem in 1937 with the passing of the Floral Emblem Act, and based on a recommendation made by a special committee of horticulturalists.
A gorgeous gift for that special someone who loves flowers and jewellery.

A new series dedicated to vases, which are considered the most expensive and famous in the whole world.

The first coin from this series “Chinese Dragon” features a small blue and white dragon porcelain vase that was sold for just about £5million – barely in 500 times more than it was estimated! The dragon vase dates back to the Qianlong period. It contains an intricate dragon motif and is beautifully decorated with bands of plantain leaves, waves, as well as a cloud-collar at the waisted neck and broad shoulders. The sides are densely painted with six meticulously rendered five-clawed dragons portrayed emerging from crashing waves and flying amid stylized clouds and flames.

A magnificent coin featuring a porcelain inset in the shape of a vase that is an incredibly fine piece of Chinese porcelain!

The first release in an interesting, thought provoking new series, this high relief silver coin depicts the Greek Goddess, Athena.

A twelve issue set, the Twelve Olympians of the Zodiac considers which of the traditional star signs coincide with the Gods of Olympus of Ancient Greece. For Athena, the decision is clear - Aries!

Athena's connection with Aries is fairly straight forward. Aries is associated with the head, and anyone even remotely aware of classical mythology knows that Athena sprung fully-formed from Zeus head, and is associated with intellect and all that it entails. Aries in particular is associated with traits like leadership, strategy and courage, all traits intrinsic to Athena in her myths. Aries in particular is associated with the fire of the mind, raw creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac and exalted in the Sun, all traits visceral to the nature of Athena's story, being the Nous of Zeus. Notably, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl, the bird of Athena.

According to some astrologists, Aries is associated with creativity and thought, as well as the rising of the dawn, being the start of the Zodiac. All of these traits can be ascribed to Athena, as the offspring of Zeus. Intriguingly, the bird most associated with Aries is the owl... the bird widely used to depict Athena.
