Description

This 2014 $5 coin is part of a popular series of coins called "Flowers in Canada", and features a beautiful poinsettia, just in time for the holidays. This unique series utilizes the metallic element Niobium to present the poinsettia in striking colour. Mintage: 6,000

 

The Design:

To create this coin, the Royal Canadian Mint has combined new and innovative minting technology with a classic flower image. The centre core of the coin is struck in pure niobium which has been naturally oxidized to refract light and create a vibrant crimson colour. The niobium core is then encircled by a ring of bright pure silver with a proof finish to create a brilliant frame and a striking contrast to the naturally coloured centre. With a mintage of just 6,000, this unique coin is both a low mintage collectible and a beautiful work of art.

The word "Canada" and the denomination "5 dollars" is along the rim of the coin.
