    Genuine 100% Authentic 

    8.5g Sterling Silver & Niobium Coin 2012 Canada $5 Algonquin - April Full Pink Moon

    2012 Canada $5 Full Moons of the Algonquin - April Full Pink Moon Sterling Silver & Niobium Coin

    Calendar in the sky

    In North America, the First Nations tribes that comprise the Algonquin people utilized the lunar cycle as a celestial calendar to track time. April is the month of new life. Its full moon is most commonly known as Pink Moon to reflect the fact that the springtime flower phlox, is carpeting the ground with pink blooms.

    This five-dollar Canadian coin is certified to have an outer ring of 92.5% sterling silver and a niobium insert at its center. It has a diameter of 28 millimeters and a struck coin weight of 8.5 grams. Designed by Canadian artist John Mantha, the reverse image centers around a cluster of three delicate pink phlox blossoming before a full moon.

    The flowers and night sky feature pink coloring selectively applied to the niobium insert to enhance the springtime theme. The moon is engraved to reveal in detail its cratered lunar surface and, along with the hearts of the phlox blooms, retains the coin's silver coloring for striking contrast and beauty.

    In the polished silver ring surrounding the coin's niobium center are embossed the words 'Canada' and '5 Dollars'. The obverse features the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Susanna Blunt.
