A timeless beauty that will bloom year-round as part of your collection! Order today!

A blossoming cherry tree is one of nature’s most lavish floral displays, with clusters of delicate flowers forming an awe-inspiring canopy of pink and white! This springtime spectacle is all too brief; but even as each petal is gently shed like a blushing snowflake, the ephemeral beauty of a cherry blossom is a lasting gift that renews our appreciation for the precious things in life. Yours to keep or gift, this treasurable keepsake showcases the cherry blossoms that are a flowering symbol of friendship and goodwill in several Canadian cities. By combining selective colour and engraving, the pink-hued flowers on your coin’s reverse are forever in bloom and can be viewed year-round—especially when displayed in its folder-style packaging that easily transforms into an easel.

The perfect gift for a friend or loved one who enjoys blossoming cherry trees! Order today!

Design:

Designed by Anna Bucciarelli, your coin is filled with bright, springtime cheer as it captures the peak splendour of a blossoming cherry tree. Selective colour and engraving are combined in this close view of a flower-laden branch, where the cluster of white and pink-coloured petals includes a number of engraved buds and leaves. The five-petal blossoms that have inspired countless artists are the very embodiment of “BEAUTY”, represented by the kanji character positioned just above the bough. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • In addition to the chrysanthemum, the cherry blossom (sakura) is the national flower of Japan, where cherry blossom viewing (hanami) is an annual rite.
  • In China, cherry blossoms are regarded as a symbol of feminine beauty and power.
  • Since it is native to Asia, most of Canada’s flowering cherry trees were gifted or donated — including Vancouver’s cherry trees and those in Toronto’s High Park.
  • While the Yoshino cherry tree is the most popular cherry tree in Japan, the Kanzan cherry tree is more prevalent in North America.

The character for "Beauty" is Chinese, not Mandarin. Modern Mandarin is one of the major speaking dialects of Chinese, but not a written language; although the Manchurians did have a written language far different than the Chinese characters which lost its effective usage over two hundred years ago.

I noticed that more and more, the mint is packaging and attaching their coins to the cardboard display, this is very disappointing to me. I like to display my coins together or separate making different arrangements so not having them in capsules don't work for me. I'm sure some collectors like the cardboard display but I would suggest not making the coins permanently attached to it, giving people like me the option of displaying it in my cabinet. I have turned to purchasing coins from other minds for that reason alone. I hope the Canada mint will rethink their packaging or loose customers like myself. As you can see from my profile I haven't spent nearly what I used to spend on coins in the past year or so.
