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.

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.
