A blossoming cherry tree is one of nature’s most lavish floral displays, with clusters of delicate flowers forming an awe-inspiring canopy of pink and white!

Yours to keep or gift, this treasurable keepsake showcases the cherry blossoms that are a flowering symbol of friendship and goodwill in several Canadian cities. By combining selective colour and engraving, the pink-hued flowers on your coin’s reverse are forever in bloom and can be viewed year-round—especially when displayed in its folder-style packaging that easily transforms into an easel.

Design:

Designed by Anna Bucciarelli, your coin is filled with bright, springtime cheer as it captures the peak splendour of a blossoming cherry tree. Selective colour and engraving are combined in this close view of a flower-laden branch, where the cluster of white and pink-coloured petals includes a number of engraved buds and leaves. The five-petal blossoms that have inspired countless artists are the very embodiment of “BEAUTY”, represented by the kanji character positioned just above the bough. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
