2016 $20 Majestic Maple Leaves With Drusy Stone 1oz Silver Coin

The sparkle of drusy stone conjures many delightful images: fresh powder snow, sweet sugar, and stardust.

It is a natural crystal that forms on mineral surfaces, most commonly on quartz and agate. Usually found inside geodes or in larger mineral deposits, it has become a highly coveted semi-precious stone popular among jewellers.

Its appeal lies primarily in its stunning sugar-like surface—the result of thousands of tiny faceted crystals on the surface of the stone. But quartz colours like the soft tone of the stone on this coin are rare and highly valued by jewellers and collectors.

WORLD'S FIRST! Never before has a drusy stone embellishment been included on a coin. Highly sought after in the jewellery market, crystal-encrusted drusy stone makes its global coin debut at the Royal Canadian Mint.

EACH COIN IS UNIQUE! Only a very small portion of fine drusy quartz has the rich tones selected for your coin—each is unique! The stone is set within a striking Art Nouveau-inspired design captured in painstaking detail with exquisite engraving and shading.

LOW MINTAGE: The Royal Canadian Mint will release no more 4,000 of the 2016 $20 Majestic Maple Leaves With Drusy Stone 1oz Silver Coin.

Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, your coin features a central maple leaf shaped drusy stone set within a circle of engraved maple leaves. Designed by Mr. Bianco to highlight the autumnal beauty and textural depth of the drusy stone, the dynamic engraved background features a swirling torrent of painstakingly engraved maple leaves. This central image is encircled by Art Nouveau-inspired scrollwork that lends the coin a distinctly jewellery-like feel.

The coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. A beautiful gift for someone who enjoys coins that are unique.
