    1 Oz Silver Coin 2017 $20 Canada Pearl Flowers Mother of Pearl Embellishments

    The button-like flowers of the pearl yarrow (Achillea ptarmica) are brought to life by not one but three mother-of-pearl embellishments on your beautifully engraved coin. Each piece is carefully sculpted to recreate the double bloom and its complex layers of daisy-like petals; and with their stunning luster, these 'pearly' white wildflowers will prove to be positively enchanting to all!


    Special features:

    AN ELEGANT FIRST! Your coin features three mother-of-pearl pieces that recreate the beauty of the yarrow flowers! Each mother-of-pearl embellishment on your coin is uniquely shaped to recreate the appearance of the double blossoms!

    STUNNING! Your coin is the result of the careful merging of innovative technology, world-class craftsmanship, and stunning artistic vision!

    LOW MINTAGE: Your coin has a low limited worldwide mintage of 6,000.

    INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.




    Designed by Canadian artist Margaret Best, your coin pairs a technological first with highly detailed engraving. The clustered stalks, leaves and flowers of pearl yarrow rise up from the right side of the coin to fill most of the reverse. Bees and flies are key pollinators for this species, and are represented here by the two engraved bees approaching from the left; however, the eye is naturally drawn to the three floral-shaped embellishments that re-create the pom-pom type of flowers. Each one is crafted from mother-of-pearl, which lends itself beautifully to re-creating the snow-white double blooms. The pearl luster also mimics the sun's illuminating effect, and subtly highlights the layered complexity of the daisy-like petals that have been so carefully sculpted.


    Did you know...

    Relatively winter hardy and drought-tolerant, pearl yarrow thrives in both rural and urban soils, and emblazons each setting with showy flowers of pearly white.

    Yarrow belongs to the same family as the daisy (Asteraceae).

    Scientifically known as Achillea, the genus of yarrow is named for the Greek hero Achilles, who recognized the plant's medicinal value byusing its leaves to bandage wounds at the Battle ofTroy; because of this, Greeks still regard it as a symbol of war.

    Some species of Achillea can be rather over invasive—especially the common yarrow (Achillea millefolium).

    Some of the First Nations traditionally used yarrow to treat skin irritations and cuts, headaches, burns and nosebleeds.
