A beautiful new series! Order your single coin or 8-coin subscription today!

With permafrost in the north, deserts to the south, and an ever-changing geography from coast to coast, Canada is home to an amazing array of forests, each with its own distinct flora and fauna.

The Carolinian forest represents only 1% of Canada's total land area, but has the greatest number of flora and fauna species of any Canadian ecosystem—including 1/3 of all the rare, threatened and endangered species found in Canada. This forest zone is located in the southernmost region of Ontario, between Windsor and Toronto, extending east along the shore of Lake Ontario to Bellville, and north to Goderich. Every spring, it bursts into bloom with large tulip-like flowers that grow on the tulip-tree (Liriodendron tulipifera), a stunning, fast-growing tree that grows up to 35-metres tall.

A beautiful gift for someone who enjoys unique flowers! Order your single coin or order the eight-coin subscription today!

Special features:
•  1st issue in this exciting new series that explores the diversity and beauty of Canada's forests.
•  A stunning visual essay on Canadian flora—eight coins in all!
•  An original gift for people living within Canada's smallest, and loveliest forest zone—wherever tulip-trees grow along the south shore of Lake Huron, the north shore of Lake Erie and the Niagara Peninsula.
•  Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:
Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi has created a stunning design that celebrates the tulip-tree beauty of the Carolinian forest by portraying one of its most captivating residents, the tulip-tree. The coin's foreground is dominated by a springtime bloom that has been painstakingly enhanced in colour to showcase its yellow-green petals with red-orange stripes and unusual forked leaves. In the background, tulip-trees tower above to form the forest canopy and provide a sense of scale for this floral star of the Carolinian forest.

Did you know…
•  Every spring, the Carolinian forest bursts into bloom with large tulip-like flowers that grow on the tulip-tree (Liriodendron tulipifera), a stunning, fast-growing tree that grows up to 35-metres tall.
•  From Windsor to Toronto; north to Goderich: That's roughly where you'll find the tulip-tree. It grows in Ontario's Niagara Peninsula, the north shore of Lake Erie and the south shore of Lake Huron. This area is the northernmost edge of the Carolinian forest that extends south to the Carolinas, and is also known as the "eastern deciduous" or "eastern woodlands."
•  From the age of the dinosaurs. That's right; ancient tulip-trees were in full bloom during the Cretaceous period over 65 million years ago!

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box.

        A beautiful collection that is one of a kind. RCM has done it again by adding a collector box to hold the complete set.

        I have no clue why the previous reviewer was promoting coins from Poland!

        I have ordered 2 sets.

        The Royal Canadian Mint is about "Canada" and its history ..... if people are interested in coins from other countries, why comment here??....Hmmmmmm!!!

          Great design, but mintage is too high same on most of the RCM coins. Poland and another mints issue coins with 500-2000 mintage that make them more attractive for collectors and investment.

          Very nice looking coin, wish I could grow this tree in my garden. But think I live just a bit to far north for it to survive. Hope coin looks as nice as picture.

          Wonderful coin to own.
