A diamond’s cut shapes the sparkle that makes it an everlasting symbol of love burning bright. Nowhere is this more evident than with this extraordinary coin, which was inspired by a diamond… and is shaped like one too! In collaboration with Crossworks Manufacturing and Forevermark diamonds, this first ever diamond-shaped coin is an exciting addition to our premium lineup in 2020. Its multi-dimensional shape matches the patented cut of the 0.20-carat Forevermark Black Label diamond embedded on one of the coin’s engraved facets. More than a year in the making, this diamond-within-a-diamond showpiece is the ultimate tribute to the magnificence of a perfectly cut Canadian gemstone.
DID YOU KNOW… Diamond is the hardest known material. That’s why 80% of all diamonds are used in research and industrial applications, from tools to electronic devices. The other 20% are used to create unforgettable jewellery designs and luxury pieces, like this coin!
The embedded diamond is part of the Forevermark Black Label Collection from The De Beers Group of Companies. Less than 1% of the world’s gem-quality diamonds are eligible for this distinction, and each Forevermark diamond bears a laser-inscribed symbol that is an assurance of purity, beauty and responsible sourcing.
The patented square diamond cut is exclusive to Crossworks Manufacturing Ltd., a Canadian company and the top diamantaire in North America.
DESIGN: The coin’s shape and multi-faceted design are an exact reproduction of a patented trademark diamond cut from Crossworks Manufacturing, as seen on Forevermark diamonds. On one of the coin’s crown side facets, an embedded 0.20 ct. Forevermark Black Label square diamond is the inspiration for the shape of its coin base, and it was one of the last diamonds extracted at the Victor Mine in Northern
Ontario. On the other crown side facets, the year “2020”, the word “CANADA” and the face value “50 DOLLARS” surround the obverse engraved on the table, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
