Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This Ontario White Trillium $3 fine silver coin is the first coin in a 13 coin series that features the floral emblems of Canada. Tri means “three” in Latin and Greek, and it is the number of petals, sepals and leaves (bracts) that form each white trillium. Ontario’s odourless provincial flower is a spectacular sight in late April through May, when it blooms en masse and blankets the forest floor. Mintage is limited to just 4,000. HST/GST exempt.

Canada’s most populous province was one of the first to enter Confederation in 1867. Ontario officially adopted its floral emblem in 1937 with the passing of the Floral Emblem Act, and based on a recommendation made by a special committee of horticulturalists.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a stylized floral pattern on the outer ring, while the inner core features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of Ontario, the white trillium (Trillium grandiflorum). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

White Trillium – Ontario
Trillium grandiflorum is a species of flowering perennial herbaceous plant. The white trillium is famous for its three-petaled white flowers. The flower is featured on the province’s official flag.
