2017 Tuvalu 1 Dollar 1-oz Silver Diwali Festival BU
Celebrate the Hindu Festival of Lights with this exceptional international coin
One of the most intriguing elements of coin collecting is the opportunity to get a snapshot look into entirely different cultures and practices. The 2017 1 ounce Silver Diwali Festival coin gives you one such opportunity. This stunning full-colored coin features Diwali, the ancient five day Hindu "festival of lights." The Diwali festival coincides with the Hindu New Year, and the lights it honors are seen as a new beginning. For many, Diwali celebrates the legend of Lord Rama and his wife Sita returning to their kingdom in northern India from exile after defeating the demon king Ravanna in 15th century BC. Further, Diwali also pays tribute to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth, who is guided into the homes of anyone lighting lanterns during the festival.
The Diwali Festival is considered one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal, and is recognized by millions of Hindus and Sikhs, Jains and Buddhists worldwide. Now you can bring the spirit of this joyful celebration into your coin collection with the 2017 1 ounce Silver Diwali Festival coin, available now from GovMint.com.
A Brilliant Uncirculated coin in rich, remarkable color
It’s no surprise that this deeply colored coin is minted by the Perth Mint, whose fame is only growing as each year the mint produces a wealth of innovative coin designs. You can see for yourself the results when you hold this beautiful coin. It weighs 31.1 grams and is a large 40.6 mm in diameter, struck in 99.99% fine silver.
- A JOYFUL CELEBRATION OF GOOD OVER EVIL, LIGHT OVER DARKNESS-- The Diwali Festival coin immediately will catch the attention of anyone viewing your collection because of its fantastic coloration. On its reverse is featured a brightly hued representation of Lakshmi, the Hindu goddess of wealth, health, fortune and prosperity. She sits on a lotus flower, with a profusion of gold coins spilling from her hands, which symbolizes both material and spiritual wealth. In addition to the “P” mint mark to denote the Perth Mint, the reverse also features the words "HAPPY DIWALI." The obverse of the coin is also striking, though not full-colored. It displays an image of Queen Elizabeth II based on an Ian Rank-Broadley design, a fourth-generation depiction which has been used on many commonwealth and British coins since 1998. The inscriptions on the reverse include "QUEEN ELIZABETH II," "TUVALU," "1 DOLLAR," "1 OZ 9999 AG," and "2017."
- A BRILLIANT UNCIRCULATED PROOF COMPLETE WITH COLORFUL PACKAGING-- With a relatively low mintage 5,000 pieces, your 2017 Silver Diwali Festival coin will delight you with its Brilliant Uncirculated Proof condition. It’s presented in a contemporary latex case which easily displays both sides of the coin, and is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
