Canada 2012 $5 Silver And Niobium Coin - Full Pink Moon 004 Calendar The Sky # E:
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 centre. It has a diameter of 28 millimetres and a struck coin weight of 8.5 grams. Designed by Canadian artist John Mantha, the reverse image centres around a cluster of three delicate pink phlox blossoming before a full moon.
The flowers and night sky feature pink colouring 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 colouring for striking contrast and beauty.
In the polished silver ring surrounding the coin's niobium centre are embossed the words 'Canada' and '5 Dollars'. The obverse features the portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, by Susanna Blunt.
