Description

A beautiful embodiment of the season, the delicately coloured apple blossom adds a sweet fragrance to the gentlest breeze! Spring is in full bloom on this fine silver coin, whose colour-over-engraved reverse showcases the seasonal beauty of CanadaÕs national apple tree: the McIntosh.

Designed by artist Jan Poynter, the reverse re-creates a dazzling springtime display by combining colour and detailed engraving against the shine of a proof finish. The apple tree in full bloom is inspired by the McIntosh variety, which was first discovered in Dundela, Ontario, and is now CanadaÕs most commonly cultivated apple. Like a botanical illustration, the blossom-laden bough below offers an enlarged view of the delicate-looking flowers nestled in the green leaves. The addition of a design flourish hints at the apple blossomÕs sweet scent, which floats in the spring breeze and attracts pollinators to the yellow centre of each white and pink-coloured bloom.

Colour over engraving re-creates the soft pastel hues of each apple blossom, which adds a delicate-looking beauty to orchards and yards each spring.
