2013 Canada $150 Blessings of Peace Pure Gold (No Tax)

This stunning scallop-edged pure gold coin celebrates the strong and vibrant Chinese communities of Canada, the unique heritage of Chinese Canadians, and the unique customs of this ancient culture-while conferring on its owner a powerful blessing of peace.

This 99.999% pure gold coin has a diameter of 22.5 millimeters and weighs 10.4 grams. It is the fifth coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's lotus-shaped coin series celebrating the history and traditions of Canada's Chinese communities. The reverse image features Canadian artist Aries Cheung's striking phoenix and auspicious clouds design.

Around a circular 'sun' bearing the Chinese symbols for 'peace,' the reverse image features a stylized phoenix rendered in breathtaking detail. The bird's pheasant visage and sharp parrot bill are viewed in striking profile, facing the left side of the coin. The phoenix raises its right swallow wing above its head while its left wing folds delicately beneath its duck-like body. Each feather is executed with deft skill to enhance the design's depth and beauty.

Three graceful peacock tailfeathers flow out from behind the bird, filling the right side of the reverse's central field. Above the phoenix is a stylized sky filled with swirling peony-like clouds. The scalloped outer band encircling the reverse field is engraved with the word 'CANADA' and the Chinese characters for 'CANADA', the face value '150 DOLLARS' and the date '2013.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
