The formal garden on your coin is an enchanting invitation to let your imagination wander down a sun-dappled pathway lined with blue-hued summer blooms, which form a colourful base for the stately maple canopy overhead. But the true test of perfection in a garden design comes with the changing seasons; and when viewed under a black light (included), the tree tunnel is a vision of autumn beauty! A rich summer green in the natural light, the maple trees become amber and red columns that have “dripped” colour under the black light, with leaves scattered among the flowers and foliage below. The effect is a carefully layered symphony of technologies, seasonal colour and beauty—a magical botanical setting that is a treat for the eyes!

Designed by Jan Poynter, your coin features a formal garden basking in the summer sunshine. A sun-dappled pathway draws the eye deeper into the avenue of sugar maple trees (Acer saccharum), where a canopy of leaves form a partially shaded tunnel that leads to the manicured grounds, hedges and roses ahead. The path is lined with Nepeta, whose blooms add a delicate halo of blue to the base of the trees. This enchanting mix of engraving of colour conceals an additional scene, one that reveals itself under black light, when the same garden has instantly transitioned to peak autumn colours. The maple trees are now radiant columns of amber and red that have “dripped” colour onto the flowerbeds below, where leaves are scattered among hostas—a tribute to a gardener’s ability to combine the best of each season in one idyllic space. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
