A gorgeous coin that features the cherry tree's characteristic pink cloud. Order today!

Delicate shades of pink fill this pure silver coin to breathtaking effect. The springtime blossom of the cherry tree is an ancient symbol in Japanese culture that has long been celebrated in poetry and art—and continues to inspire cross-cultural festivals to this day. Vancouver's famous Cherry Blossom Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, while farther east, the cherry trees that bloom in Toronto's High Park stand as living symbols of friendship between Canada and Japan.

Celebrate spring and all of the beauty the season brings, with this magnificent engraved coin with colour! Order today!

Special features:
  • The application of soft colours infuses the pink flowers with a life-like aura of lightness and fragile beauty. A flowing graphic flourish behind the bough represents the passage of time and the continuing reverence for the cherry blossom in art and culture.
  • The addition of a modern flourish to a timeless image results in a vibrant contemporary design that is sure to appeal to art appreciators and collectors alike!
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! Features colour over the engraved depiction of a Kwanzan cherry tree in full bloom.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Jan Poynter, your coin captures the soul-stirring splendour of a blooming Kwanzan cherry tree, as can be seen in many parks and neighbourhoods throughout Canada in the spring. Finely detailed engraving recreates the delicate appearance of the iconic five-petal blossoms, both on the tree and the flower-laden bough in the foreground.

Did you know?
  • Cherry trees belong to the Prunus genus of shrubs and trees, which includes almonds, peaches, plums and apricots; they all fall within the Rosaceae family, which includes roses, apples and pears. 
  • Many of the trees that produce these famous blossoms are bred more for their flowers than their fruit.
  • The leaves and the blossoms are considered to be edible but in small quantities only, since they contain coumarin, which can be toxic in high doses.
  • Just like their blooms, ornamental cherry trees can have a relatively short lifespan—many of these cultivars live an average of only 20 years.
  • The Yoshino cherry tree is the most popular cherry tree in Japan and produces white flowers of five petals in early April. In North America, the Kwanzan cherry tree is more popular, with flowers of multiple dark pink petals that emerge roughly two weeks after the Yoshino variety.
  • In Vancouver, 500 cherry trees were gifted by the mayors of Kobe and Yokohama in the early 1930s, with 300 more donated in 1958 by the Japanese consul; by 1990, nearly 36% of the trees on the city's streets were plum and cherry trees.
  • In 1959, 2,000 Yoshino trees were gifted to the citizens of Toronto on behalf of the citizens of Tokyo, Japan.

Packaging:

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

this was a great investment. although we purchased it way back March the 3 or 4th and didn't receive it until June 3. Why do you have to wait that long? if they are selling them why aren't they ready to go?

My only complaint about this coin is that it is not part of a set! There are many Beautiful flowering shrubs and trees that could have made this a lovely subscription series coin! Otherwise, it's a beautiful addition to any collector's coin displays!

First Ever Coin My Wife Truly Loved!

5

I purchased this for my wife's Birthday gift. She happened to pass by my TV when this coin was on The Shopping Channel. She said what a beautiful coin (which she never says), I was floored. I purchased a chain and bezel set to turn it into a jewelry piece. When she opened it, she was truly excited! I have a huge collection, and this was the first coin to ever produce a very positive reaction.

I have noticed the "cherry blossom" coin has a mintage of 6500 indicated on the mint website; however, authorized dealer websites indicate a mintage of 10000. Is the mintage 6500 as indicated?

jag

Hi jag - the mintage on this page is correct. It is 6500. Thanks for your question.

Hi I was wondering, I'm going to purchase this coin because it's very beautiful, but my question is how low does the mintage have to be for a coin to be valuable and hold its value and can you tell me the mintage number like 10000 or like 6500 or is it even less of the mintage number for it to be valuable thanks Dan.

Dan
