A beautiful embodiment of the season, the delicately coloured apple blossom adds a sweet fragrance to the gentlest breeze! Spring is in full bloom on the colour-over-engraved reverse, which showcases the seasonal beauty of Canada's national apple tree: the McIntosh. You can almost hear the buzz of a honeybee while looking at the blossom-laden bough, whose pink-and-white petals never fail to entice one of nature's most industrious pollinators.

A gorgeous apple blossom coin that will brighten your day! Order today!

Design:
Designed by artist Jan Poynter, your coin re-creates a dazzling springtime display by combining colour and detailed engraving against the shine of a proof finish. The apple tree in full bloom is inspired by the McIntosh variety, which was first discovered in Dundela, Ont., and is now Canada's most commonly cultivated apple. Like a botanical illustration, the blossom-laden bough below offers an enlarged view of the delicate-looking flowers nestled in the green leaves. The addition of a design flourish hints at the apple blossom's sweet scent, which floats in the spring breeze and attracts pollinators to the yellow centre of each white and pink-coloured bloom. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
