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 the first time, in 2018, The Perth Mint has issued a special one gram gold coin to celebrate this Hindu “festival of lights”. Featuring a depiction of the deity Ganesha, each 99.99% pure gold coin is presented on a card.
