Special features:
  • Timeless and elegant, this popular rose is brought to life in exquisite detail thanks to precision engraving and a superb artistic design.
  • ROSE GOLD PLATING! Using gold plating, your coin recreates the distinctive colour of the blooms that captures beauty and essence.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! The selective plating strikes a colourful contrast against the silver surface of the coin, which is crafted from 99.99% pure silver.

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features two open blooms of the Queen Elizabeth rose variety. Timeless and elegant, the highly detailed design conveys much of the rose's delicate beauty through the meticulous engraving, which gives the image its life-like quality. The use of rose gold plating technology on the two blooms further adds to the artistry by representing the Queen Elizabeth rose's distinctive pink colour, allowing this majestic floral beauty to stand out against the silver background.

Did you know…
  • The Queen Elizabeth rose is a cross between the Charlotte Armstrong hybrid tea rose and the Floradora floribunda rose, and was introduced in 1954.
  • It was the first to be classified as a grandiflora rose, a category that was created specifically for it; this class is not universally recognized, meaning that the Queen Elizabeth rose is sometimes classified as a floribunda.
  • There is a climbing variety known as Climbing Queen Elizabeth, but it isn't as free-flowering as the Queen Elizabeth.
  • An easy-going rose, it continues to be one of the most popular roses in the world due to its lightly scented, long-stemmed blooms that are perfect for cutting!

In Canada, one of the most important qualities any plant can possess is versatility, and the Queen Elizabeth rose has it in spades. The rose bush can grow to 1.3 metres high, and the pink roses themselves are medium-sized, with clusters of high-centred buds and blooms of 26 to 40 petals. It requires minimal upkeep—just a little pruning and a lot of space—in order to grow strong, making it an excellent addition to any sunny garden. Queen Elizabeth roses are truly hardy yet beautiful—a combination of traits that exemplify Canada itself.

Packaging:

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

Found this coin was a bit smaller than I expected and the color was very vague. Low mintage is a plus. Affordable, recommended, but not home run coin.

I don't see where I can buy this coin?

Jay

Hi Jay, We do not have any more of these coins to sell. I'd recommend contacting any of our authorized coins dealers to see if they have any. Here's the link to our dealer locator page; http://www.mint.ca/store/mint/customer-service/dealer-locator-1400026?cat=Dealer+locator&nId=1400026&nodeGroup=Customer+Service

Is the color of the roses actually reddish?....the pic shows them as tan or light brown.

nscheffie

Thank you for your question. The colour of the gold is considered to be rose-coloured. The image has been updated with a photograph and to get a sense of the real colour, the video should offer some more detail.

I am looking for a gift for an aunt who is the same age as Queen Elizabeth, which is 90 this year. I was wondering if there is anything on the coin or the packaging that mentions the fact that this is a Queen Elizabeth rose? Thanks.

Annette

Hi Annette, Yes, the certificate mentions this is a Queen Elizabeth's rose. Hope that helps.

Is this coin part of a future series, or is it being minted as a stand-alone coin? Are there plans to release additional "flower themed" coins?

bof

Hi bof, This is a standalone coin. We don't disclose our themes ahead of time, but if you sign up for our email newsletter you will be amongst the first to know of any new releases.

Why does not this coin inscribed with the " 9999 pure silver" ?

Pavel

Hi Pavel, Most of our coins do not feature the amount of silver on the face of the coin. The amount of silver will be denoted in the certificate of authenticity which comes with the coin.

the color of the roses looks to be almost brown....instead of pink or red...can you confirm that please...coin looks great !

Jeff
