The Perth Mint is pleased to present this 1oz silver gilded medallion to celebrate Diwali.
Diwali is the ancient Hindu ‘festival of lights’. Celebrated by millions of people in India and all around the world, the five-day festival represents 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.
Rituals practiced during Diwali include cleaning and decorating homes with oil lamps called diyas. Family feasts, gift-giving, fireworks and sweets are other long-established customs. Participants also pay homage to Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity, and the elephant headed Ganesha, the god of good fortune.
The Diwali 1oz Silver Gilded Medallion is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver and has an unlimited mintage.
