Outer ring of 92.5% sterling silver and a niobium insert at its centre. Distinct and innovative minting process! Niobium insert is struck into the core of a sterling silver coin and then selectively coloured through a unique oxidization process made possible by the unique properties of this rare metal. Designed by Canadian artist John Mantha, your coins design shows a cluster of phlox blossoming before a full moon; the pink colouring selectively applied to the niobium insert enhances the springtime theme.
