Description

Celebrate Diwali with this beautifully crafted Festival of Lights gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint.

Diwali is one of India’s most significant holidays and is celebrated by millions of people every year. It signifies the victory of light over darkness as it is known as the “Festival of Lights.” For five days surrounding the night of the new moon in autumn, the sky is lit with candles and lanterns as families and friends are brought together to celebrate and rejoice the triumph of good over evil. Although there is a variation of rituals and practices among regions and religions, the underlying theme of hope over despair is ever present in all who revel in the Diwali celebration.

At the centre center of the coin there is a flame symbolizing the spirit of Diwali. Surrounding the flame is a depiction of the Ashoka Chakra, which can be found on India’s national flag, along with the outline of Canada’s maple leaf. The overall design of the coin not only celebrates Diwali, but also Canada’s acceptance and commemoration of multi-culturalism.

Commemorate Diwali with your loved ones this year with this beautifully minted coin.

This coin ships in an RCM branded clam shell held within a full colour graphic box.
