The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Your coin's reverse features an interpretation of the Lover's Knot Tiara.

The arrangement is framed by engraved elements resembling the tiara's headband. The commemorative obverse features scroll flourishes and the four effigies of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II that have appeared on Canadian coins since 1953. The Lover's Knot Tiara. This famous tiara is also known as Queen Mary's Lover's Knot Tiara, for it was Queen Mary who commissioned it from the House of Garrard in 1913. Modelled after the original Cambridge Lover's Knot Tiara worn by her grandmother and aunt, Queen Mary's version of the tiara is made from diamonds and pearls that once adorned the Ladies of England Tiara.
The regal headpiece was passed down to Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 1953; it was later loaned to Diana, Princess of Wales, and has been frequently worn by Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge. Her Majesty has two birthdays! She was born on April 21, 1926, but in the United Kingdom, the monarch's birthday has always been publicly celebrated on the second Saturday in June. The Lover's Knot Tiara originally included upright pearls on top of the 19 diamond arches.
The pearls were taken from the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, one of Her Majesty's favourite tiaras, but Queen Mary later had them removed from the Lover's Knot Tiara too. Your coin is individually encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. Composition 99.99% pure silver.
