Description

For over seven decades, a wild orchid has served as the floral emblem of Prince Edward Island. Canada’s island province is home to three indigenous species of lady’s slippers (Cypripedium spp.), but it is the pink lady’s slipper seen on this coin that is the official provincial flower. Between April and July, the pink-and-white petals of the lady’s slipper attract insect and human admirers alike. As captivating as it may be, this slow growing, sweetly scented, woodland beauty should not be disturbed and it is better to admire it in the wild… or on our seventh jewellery-inspired Floral Emblems of Canada coin.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of Prince Edward Island, the pink lady’s slipper (Cypripedium acaule). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
