Description

While Iris versicolor can be found in marshes and along shorelines in central and eastern Canada, it has special meaning in the province of Quebec. This violet-blue wildflower is synonymous with wetlands, rivers and lakes in La belle province, where the provincial emblem blooms between late May and early July. Quebec was one of the first four Canadian provinces established by the British North America Act (Confederation) in 1867. And thatÕs why its provincial flower is Coin #2 in the vintage jewellery-inspired Floral Emblems of Canada series.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a stylized floral pattern on the outer ring, while the inner core features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of Quebec, the blue flag iris (Iris versicolor). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
