Product Description

Yellow daffodils are highlighted in 24-karat gold on this artistic silver coin!

Sold out at the Mint!The beautiful daffodil adorns this sterling silver proof. The daffodil, also referred to as the jonquil, is a flower whose blooms herald the arrival of spring, sometimes poking up through the snow. The genus name Narcissus is the Latin name for this group of hardy, mostly spring-flowering, bulbs. This name is derived from that of the narcissistic youth of Greek mythology called Narkissos.

This is the second annual entry in the very popular Golden Flowers series.
