2024 Canada $20 Dancing Ammolite: Elements of Nature - Air Fine Silver

NEW SERIES! Air swirls and surrounds this dancing Canadian ammolite. Order Coin #1 today!

Flowing, swirling and always in motion, the elemental force of Air is a catalyst for change, driving movement in all its forms. Its association with motion, with life and energy, is expressed by the uniquely Canadian gemstone mounted at the centre of this 99.99% pure silver coin – the first in an exciting new series.

Surrounded by engraving that rises and falls like the very breath of the universe itself, the ammolite – formed under pressure from fossilized shells encased in rock – is seemingly light as air. It reacts to the slightest movement of its coin base, dancing and flashing its multicoloured ammolite is predominantly yellow to symbolize the element of Air as it radiates a joyful energy, while also reminding us that life on Earth – past and present – wouldn’t exist without Air.

Ammolite is the official gemstone of Alberta. It is ethically mined from the province’s Bearpaw Geological Formation and that is the only place in the world where commercial quantities of gem-quality ammolite are found.

Practitioners of Feng Shui believe ammolite carries positive cosmic energy (Qi) absorbed from the world, and that its yellow radiance is an auspicious colour for wealth.

Enhanced with selective gold plating, the reverse design by Vancouver-based artist Mariya Olshevska features an array of line art patterns that visually convey motion and evoke the sense of an ever-changing wind. This swirling representation of Air rises as it surrounds the opening at the centre of the coin, where a multicoloured ammolite, predominantly yellow, is set in a 3D mount fashioned by Canadian-owned and operated Beverly Hills Jewellers; the gold-plated setting allows the suspended gemstone to “dance” at the slightest movement of the coin base. The obverse features the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.

Special Features:
  • First coin in a new series. The new Dancing Ammolite series showcases the captivating qualities of a rare and a responsibly sourced uniquely Canadian gemstone, while also representing the elemental forces that produced the gem. Collect all four coins!
  • Yellow for Air. The multicoloured ammolite is predominantly yellow to symbolize the element of Air — the theme for 2024 — and no two stones are alike. Other coins in the series will focus on the symbolic colours of green, red and blue.
  • A dynamic design. The element of Air is also represented in the engraved design that surrounds and complements the dancing ammolite. Natural light practically dances across the coin’s surface, bouncing off the incused and raised details that visually convey the movement of air –from a gentle breeze to a veritable whirlwind.
  • Dancing ammolite. The genuine Canadian ammolite is mounted and housed in an intricate 3D frame fashioned by Canadian-owned and operated Beverly Hills Jewellers. The jewellery mount allows the ammolite to move, “dance” and flash its colour with the slightest movement of its coin base.
  • A special cut. The ammolite is round shaped and features a checkerboard cut that maximizes its lustre and colour display.
  • Selective gold plating. Select design elements, including the gemstone mount, are plated with yellow gold to create a gleaming colour contrast.
  • Low mintage. Like the popular Sparkle of the Heart series that ended in 2023, mintage is limited to 925 coins.
  • Mark the moment. An exquisite gift for celebrating that special someone or occasion, whether a birthday, anniversary or milestone achievement, or an exciting addition to your collection – one that is sure to spark joy.
  • Includes special certificate and art card. In addition to the certificate of authenticity from the Royal Canadian Mint, your coin comes with a serialized certificate of authenticity from Beverly Hills Jewellers. Enclosed in a passport holder, the certificate attests to the authenticity of your ammolite, and is accompanied by an art card featuring the original design concept.
The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a special graphic beauty box.
