Few springtime displays rival the spectacular, awe-inspiring beauty of a cherry tree in full bloom! The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this rite of spring and cultural hallmark with a magnificent fine silver coin that melds craftsmanship with artistic vision.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Jan Poynter 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. 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.
A striking addition to any floral or nature-themed collection and a superb gift for the nature lover in all of us.
