Few springtime displays rival the spectacular, awe-inspiring beauty of a cherry tree in full bloom! The Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this rite of spring and cultural hallmark with a magnificent fine silver coin that melds craftsmanship with artistic vision. The reverse design by Canadian artist Jan Poynter captures the soul-stirring splendour of a blooming Kwanzan cherry tree, as can be seen in many parks and neighbourhoods throughout Canada in the spring. Finely detailed engraving recreates the delicate appearance of the iconic five-petal blossoms, both on the tree and the flower-laden bough in the foreground. The application of soft colours infuses the pink flowers with a life-like aura of lightness and fragile beauty. A flowing graphic flourish behind the bough represents the passage of time and the continuing reverence for the cherry blossom in art and culture. Celebrate spring and all of the beauty the season brings, with this magnificent engraved coin!
