Zodiac coins have found a place in the hearts of coin collectors everywhere. Since zodiac coins have such a powerful personal appeal, they are also adored outside of the coin collecting circles. Royal Canadian Mint’s Chinese Lunar coins, therefore, make great gifts as they add beauty, variety and appeal to any collection.
Chinese Lunar coins are appealing to collectors because, along with their financial value, they hold deep sentimental value. Their connection with birthdates makes them great gift ideas and is the key reason behind their sentimental value. For people whose astrological sign is Libra, the Mint has released $5 silver coin that is a perfect gift or keepsake item that is sure to be treasured for a long time.
Libra – Balanced, Detached, Just
Libra shares, with Gemini and Aquarius, a position of air symbols in the Zodiac system. This astrological sign, the seventh in the system, is depicted by an image of the Greek character Themis, representing divine law and custom. He can be seen holding a scale that reflects the balance that must prevail. Today, Themis is closely associated with the modern ‘lady of justice’.
Libra is a significant astrological sign as it is associated with positive events in history such as the establishment of Rome, one of the greatest civilizations in history. It was thought that the moon
was in Libra at the time of Rome’s rise and this contributed to the success of the civilization. Undoubtedly, the Romans capitalized on this idea to ensure that they developed a reputation for being a powerful society.
Libra applies to people born between the dates of September 23rd to October 23rd. True to the descriptions of the astrological sign that covers their birth, these people are predicted to have a calm rational and balanced approach to life. They are able to separate personal attachments from professional ones when evaluating situations and as such have earned the reputation for being unbiased and level headed.
The 2019 Fine Silver $5 Coin in the Zodiac Series-Libra
In 2019, Royal Canadian Mint released a new Libra coin as part of a 12 coin set reflecting the entire Zodiac system. The coin’s artwork, produced by Jori Van Der Linde, is an immaculate depiction of all that Libra symbolizes. At the core of the design, in an inner circle, the constellation that represents Libra set in a background of a dark blue sky dotted with other stars. This inner circle is framed by a circle of twenty Swarovski crystals. The peace and balance associated with Libra is reflected by the cool blue of the coin’s inner circle as well as the cool appearance of the crystals. These twelve diamonds are set in a gold backdrop with golden dots arranged in circular form to form a broken frame around the diamonds.
The outer circle consists of a clock-like presentation of the Roman numerals 1-12, no doubt reflecting the twelve months represented in the series. The coin is 99.99% pure silver and has a diameter of 27mm. Its serrated edges and proof image add to its pristine beauty. It weighs 7.96g and has a diameter of 27mm. The mintage for this coin is 4000 and its face value is $5.
