A MINT FIRST! A filigree gate fashioned from white bronze! Order today!

To some, gates are a way to keep people out—but they can also be a beautiful invitation to enter. The intricate scrollwork of a filigree garden gate sets an elegant tone and catches the eye, beckoning you to look at what secret lies beyond it: a stunning display of nature's brightest colours, in all shapes and sizes!

A garden in full bloom is a world within a world; it's where nature and art are intertwined. In this carefully cultivated midst, the deliberate arrangement of trees, shrubs, plants and pathways have an enchanting effect on the senses. There's a prevailing sense of peace and calm as you move further into this magical setting, where the scents and sights mingle to invite reflection and relaxation at every turn.

A true must-have for gardeners, nature lovers, and creative spirits! Order today!

Design:

Inspired by gardens across Canada, your coin design pays tribute to nature's beauty and the artistic endeavours of Canadian gardeners. At first glance, there's a prevailing sense of enchantment and mystery thanks to the filigree gate that stretches across the reverse. Fashioned from white bronze and inspired by an 18th century design, the filigree garden gate by Canadian artist Margaret Best has an intricate, almost delicate appearance that belies its resilience. The coin's large diameter (50 mm) allows a breathtaking mix of colour-over-engraved details behind the gate, as the eyes wander down the stone pathway leading to the cottage. Designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco, this magical summer garden brings together some perennial garden favourites in Canada: a climbing rose, hydrangea, phlox, bee balm, salvia and rudbeckia. All are depicted in full bloom, which heightens the larger-than-life quality of this picture-perfect setting. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Our northern climate and varied geography can help or hinder any gardening efforts! Precipitation, wind, temperature, soil conditions and the number of frost-free days are some of the key factors to consider when planning or maintaining a Canadian garden.
  • Knowing their plant hardiness zone can help gardeners select the right plants, shrubs and trees for their space. Canada is divided into 19 zones—0a being the harshest (the Arctic) and 9a being the mildest (parts of Lower Mainland BC). With climate change, many gardeners are revisiting their assumptions about local conditions and finding that they are now in a warmer plant hardiness zone!
  • A cheery addition to our garden on the reverse, rudbeckia is more commonly known as black-eyed Susan. Native to North America, this yellow perennial is remarkably resilient and will happily bloom in sunny locations!
  • Hydrangeas can come in a range of soft colours, but some varieties (e.g. Hydrangea macrophylla) may have different coloured blooms depending on the soil's pH level: blue if the soil is more acidic, pink for alkaline.

Packaging:

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

This coin looks way better in real life. It looks like there is a real gate attached to the coin which adds the lifelike element to the coin. A little pricey but well worth it
