Product Description

Hard to find and sold out already at the Mint - the latest entry in the ever-popular Golden Flowers series!

Sold out at the Mint!The beautiful daisy adorns this sterling silver proof. It is thought that the name "daisy" is a corruption of "day's eye", because the whole head closes at night and opens in the morning. Because of this early doctors believed the daisy could cure eye ailments. Although this probably isn't true, the daisy is an herb with medicinal properties. Daisy tea can relax the bronchials and soothe stomach ulcers as well as digestive troubles. Perhaps the best known use of the daisy (outside the garden, at least) is as a prognosticator of affections - "She loves me, she loves me not..."

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