Diwali is an ancient five-day Hindu ‘festival of lights’. Celebrated by millions of Hindus, Sikhs, Jains, and some Buddhists around the world, Diwali is considered one of the happiest holidays in India and Nepal. The main theme of the festival is the triumph of light over darkness, goodness over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair.
For 2018, The Perth Mint has again issued a special silver coin to celebrate this Hindu “festival of lights”. Featuring a full colour depiction of the deity Ganesha, each 99.99% pure silver coin is housed in a presentation frame and accompanied by a certificate of authenticity. Mintage 5,000 coins.
