2002 Canadian 50-Cent Golden Tulip Sterling Silver Gold-plated Coin

 

Gratitude and affection in full bloom

The invasion of Holland during the Second World War forced the Dutch royal family into exile. They sought, and found, refuge in Ottawa, Canada's capital. For safeguarding her family, Princess (later Queen) Juliana thanked Canada with a personal gift of 20,000 tulip bulbs. That gift became an annual bequest and transformed Ottawa into the floral showcase that it is today.

Furthermore, 2002 marks the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Tulip Festival, the perfect time to mark Princess Juliana's generous gift, and a gloriously beautiful tradition. 

With a superb 22-karat gold-plated design that does justice to their exquisite beauty, the Royal Canadian Mint proudly presents the 2002 Canadian 50-Cent Golden Tulip Sterling Silver Coin, a tribute to the continuing gift of tulips.
