Description

This 2013 25 cent coin is the first issue in an exciting new series that brings a magnified perspective to an all-time favourite theme—flowers. By their very nature, flowers are best celebrated with colour, and this coin has been selectively coloured in painstaking detail to showcase the beauty of the yellow and orangey-red flowers that bloom on the eastern prickly pear; a surprising cactus indigenous to Canada that grows on the nation’s southernmost point—Point Pelee in Ontario. Mintage is 17,500 coin. 

The Design:
