Design:

Designed by Steve Hepburn, your coin celebrates the start of the high season for flower and garden festivals across Canada. A ground-level view of the Peace Tower on Parliament Hill highlights a colourful array of tulips that are among the flowering symbols of spring in places such as Ottawa, Ontario, which hosts a world-famous tulip festival each May. The image is framed by stylized icons that represent popular outdoor activities and sights in Canada: (clockwise from top) Niagara Falls; a Christmas tree; a rodeo; wine tasting; dogsledding; music festivals; cherry blossoms; maple syrup season; whale watching; tulips in bloom; coastal drives; and the aurora borealis. The obverse features the year "2019" and face value "3 DOLLARS", and the framed effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • Bloom times differ across Canada:
    Canadians are subject to Mother Nature's whims, which may include an early/late start to spring in any given year. Plant survival is also affected by our climate and geography—in fact, Canada is divided into nine major plant hardiness zones, with 8 being the mildest and 0 being the harshest for plants to grow. These zones are further split into two subzones, with each location rated "a" for colder or "b" for warmer.
  • A bed of tulips (like the one on your coin) requires advance planning and a lot of bulbs:
    Tulips aren't native to Canada, but they flourish in our gardens. For spring blooms, the bulb needs to be planted (pointed end up) in the fall or early winter, before the ground freezes.

Packaging:

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