2020 Diwali Festival 1oz Silver Gilded Medallion.
Diwali is an ancient five day Hindu 'festival of lights'. Celebrated by millions of people in India and all around the world, the five-day festival represents new beginnings and the triumph of light over darkness and knowledge over ignorance. The annual event marks the beginning of the Hindu New year in October or November, with the date changing in accordance with the Hindu lunar calendar.
Festival goers also take part in puja (Prayers), often kneeling before Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, to seek her divine blessing. A traditional form of art known as rangoli is frequently drawn in front of the entrance to a house or in a prayer room. Created using coloured petals, flour, rice, sand or powders, its intricate pattern serves as a welcoming gesture for the gods and is believed to trap negative energy while attracting luck.
The medallion is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver and has an unlimited mintage.
The reverse of the medallion features a gilded representation of Lakshmi holding lotus flowers and dropping coins from her palm into a bowl at her feet.
The goddess is sitting on a lotus flower. The design includes the inscription 'happy diwali', the medallion's weight and fineness and The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark.
The medallion's obverse design features a diya oil lamp surrounded by flower petals in a rangoli-inspired pattern.
The medallion is housed in a contemporary latex case within a beautifully illustrated shipper and accompanied by a certificate of Authenticity.
