Description

Canada's gardens are filled with a tremendous variety of flowers, but a few of them remain all-time favourites that always capture more admiring gazes than all the others. One is the tulip, and its big, bold dash of springtime colour is so popular that Ottawa has become "The Tulip Capital of North America." This attractive and technically complicated to produce 2014 $5 tulip coin has a niobium core that has been individually oxidized for a one-of-a-kind patina that will last forever. It delivers a unique background to showcase the single golden tulip - a tribute to one of Canada's superstar blooms. Mintage is limited to just 6,000.  GST/HST exempt.

Canada provided safe haven for the Dutch royal family during the Second World War. When the conflict ended, they began sending annual gifts of tulip bulbs to Canada. Today, Ottawa blooms with millions of tulips every year, while Canadians have planted countless more in their gardens from coast to coast.


The Design:
This coin shows a single tulip flower selectively coloured so it stands out from a sea of blooms—a tribute to the welcome sight that graces Canadian gardens from coast to coast each spring. The design is further enhanced by the coin's oxidized niobium core to create a stunning, one-of-a-kind effect.
