Product Description

A coin that celebrates the start of spring with colorful cherry blossoms! The stunning beauty of the natural world blooms in full color on this beautiful silver proof!

Sold out at the Mint!
Few springtime displays rival the spectacular, awe-inspiring beauty of a cherry tree in full bloom! Talisman Coins and Royal Canadian Mint celebrates this rite of spring and cultural hallmark with a magnificent pure silver coin that melds craftsmanship with artistic vision.

Delicate shades of pink fill this pure silver coin to breathtaking effect. The springtime blossom of the cherry tree is an ancient symbol in Japanese culture that has long been celebrated in poetry and art - and continues to inspire cross-cultural festivals to this day. Vancouver's famous Cherry Blossom Festival is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year, while farther east, the cherry trees that bloom in Toronto's High Park stand as living symbols of friendship between Canada and Japan.

Canada 2016 Cherry Blossoms for Spring $15 Pure Silver Proof with ColorAn Original Work of Art!
The gorgeous design by Canadian artist Anna Bucciarelli captures the soul-stirring splendor of a blooming Kwanzan cherry tree, as can be seen in many parks and neighborhoods throughout the U.S. and 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 colors 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.
