2020 Canada $5 Birthstones: December Fine Silver Coin

December's birthstone is prized for its rarity and distinctive colour. Tanzanite is a calming stone. In terms of healing energy, it is believed to bring balance, wisdom and health to those born in this month. 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.

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 December (tanzanite), 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.
