A 2016 $5 Silver Proof Swarovski® Birthstone Series Coin in PF70 UCAM condition as graded by NGC in First Releases. This piece is embedded with a genuine, gem-toned Swarovski® crystal embellishment that replicates December's birthstone: Tanzanite. Tanzanite is a birthstone for December, along with zircon, turquoise, and blue topaz. Note: That this coin is made with Swarovski® Crystal and has an extremely low mintage of just 3,000 pieces! The dragon design by Three Degrees Creative Group is both visually compelling and richly symbolic, with a thoughtful melding of traditional and contemporary design elements. In the background, a beautifully engraved lotus pattern fills the reverse in a modern take on the blooms that traditionally symbolize purity of the heart and mind. A majestic, mid-relief dragon is brought to life through intricate engraving that recreates it in extraordinary detail; its presence also carries a strong meaning, as the dragon is a time-honoured symbol of power, strength and good luck in Asian mythology. Above it, a traditional circular motif bears the Swarovski® crystal embellishment that represents each month's birthstone. This coin is 99.99% pure silver. The coin is in stunning PERFECT condition.
