Buy with Confidence
Own this silver with simulated turquoise celebration of Iranian Canadian heritage from today to those of Ancient Persia and beyond.
Canadians of Iranian heritage can proudly lay claim to a rich tapestry of history, culture, literature and artistic traditions that encompass a wide range of disciplines – from architecture to weaving and metalwork, and so much more.
Available in 99.99% pure silver for the first time, the Royal Canadian Mint’s 2024 Celebrating Canada’s Diversity coin incorporates design elements that reflect Iranian cultural traditions, spanning Ancient Persia to contemporary interpretation by an Iranian-Canadian artist, represented by Eslimi patterns and Shah Abbasi flower motifs from traditional carpet designs, lotus flowers inspired by the reliefs of Persepolis, stylized maple leaves symbolizing Canadian identity, and a paisley motif in the centre. These elements come together to surround the simulated turquoise on the coin’s reverse, where the balanced symmetry and circular symbolism are meant to inspire, to urge us to transcend our perceived limits, and to find inner peace and tranquility.

Turquoise figures prominently in Iranian art and architecture, and this is represented by the ornamental stone on your coin’s reverse. The use of simulated turquoise makes this a more affordable alternative to the pure gold coin, which features a genuine turquoise stone.
The engraved design features an elaborate mix of various important cultural symbols representing Iranian Canadians from today to those of Ancient Persia and beyond, including motifs inspired by traditional carpet designs.

DID YOU KNOW?
Turquoise has deep, historic links to Iranian culture, art and even architecture. In Persian it is called piruzeh, meaning victory and believed to offer protection. In Iran, which continues to be an important source of the blue-green gem, turquoise artifacts have been discovered at historical archaeological sites dating back thousands of years.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Soheila Esfahani features simulated turquoise surrounded by engraved patterns that celebrate the cultural heritage of Iranian Canadians from today to those of Ancient Persia and beyond. While a paisley motif surrounds the centrepiece, a repeating maple leaf (symbolizing Canadian identity) and lotus flower (inspired by the reliefs of Persepolis) form a continuous circular pattern that also incorporates a Shah Abbasi floral motif and Eslimi patterns from traditional carpet designs. The obverse features a background pattern of the Persepolis lotus flowers, and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins throughout the reign of the Queen, as well as the double dates of her reign.
