Description

Beautiful purple saxifrage (Saxifraga oppositifolia) is known as aupaluktunnguat in Inuktitut, one of Nunavut’s four official languages. This star-shaped flower is one of Canada’s northernmost wildflower species. It’s also one of the first signs of spring in the Arctic, where its speedy re-emergence after a harsh winter is symbolic of the hardy, determined nature of the region’s inhabitants.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a coloured portrait of the official floral emblem of Nunavut, the purple saxifrage (Saxifraga oppositifolia). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
