Description

British ColumbiaÕs floral emblem isnÕt so much a flower, but a flowering treeÐ a unique trait that sets the Pacific dogwood apart from our other provincial and territorial blooms. The showy white flowers on our sixth Floral Emblems of Canada coin appear each spring, and occasionally in September too. The tree itself, Cornus nuttallii, is a four-season beauty that can grow as high as 18 metres. And while the flowering dogwood was a popular image in British Columbia prior to 1956, the Floral Emblem Act assured its position as the official symbol of CanadaÕs westernmost province.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of British Columbia, the Pacific dogwood (Cornus nuttallii), surrounded by a stylized floral pattern . The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
