Double delight for Diwali devotees

Double delight for Diwali devotees

The popular festival of Diwali celebrates the victory of light over darkness, good over evil, knowledge over ignorance, and hope over despair. Known as the festival of lights, the occasion is marked by millions of people from India as well as Hindu communities all over the world with candles and fireworks.

This year we’re marking Diwali with two spectacular releases portraying Lakshmi, the goddess of wealth and prosperity. Hindus believe that by worshipping Lakshmi sincerely, but not through greed, they will be blessed with fortune and success.

Diwali represents a special time to honour Lakshmi as the colour and lights of the festivities are said to make her very happy!

Diwali Festival 2017 1oz Silver Coin

Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, the coin represents Lakshmi sitting on a lotus flower with gold coins pouring out of her hands, symbolising material and spiritual wealth.

No more than 5,000 of these vividly coloured releases will be issued, each housed in a latex display frame that showcases both sides of the coin.

Diwali Festival 2017 Stamp and Coin CoverAn aluminium bronze version of the Diwali coin is included in this new Stamp and Coin Cover featuring an official Australia Post $1.00 stamp postmarked 17 October 2017.

Happy Diwali!
