    New directly from the Mint Genuine 100% Authentic 


    7.96g Silver Coin 2021 $3 Canada Floral Emblems of Canada: Alberta Wild Rose


    Every summer, the fragrant wild rose colors Alberta's landscape so that everywhere you look, there's a profusion of pink—a sight that proves you're in Wild Rose Country. Our ninth Floral Emblems of Canada presents a close view of Alberta's official flower in peak bloom. This sun-loving shrub is named for the flowers that appear on prickly stems in late June or July. And just like Manitoba, Alberta adopted its floral emblem democratically: the final choice was made by schoolchildren in 1930, a quarter century after the mountainous province joined Confederation.

    Celebrate Wild Rose Country with this beautiful Alberta floral emblem coin. Order today.

    Special features:

    Design:
    The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a stylized floral pattern on the outer ring, while the inner core features a color portrait of the official floral emblem of Alberta, the wild rose (Rosa acicularis). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

    "I designed the series to evoke sentiments of antique hand-painted art, with vibrant colors and bold strokes that are reminiscent of a Victorian style. Inspired by the decorative filigree of fine silver, the ornate decorative border was purposely designed to complement the flowers, using stylized elements that move and twist across the surface like vines and leaves.Lisa Thomson-Khan: Artist

    Did you know…

    • The scientific name acicularis means "prickly." It's a fitting name for a small shrub rose known for its thorn-covered stems.
    • After an Edmonton newspaper raised the idea of adopting a provincial flower, The Women's Institute championed the idea and the final choice fell to Alberta's students. The wild rose was officially designated Alberta's floral emblem on March 21, 1930.
    • It's one of the most beloved symbols of Alberta but the wild rose grows naturally in many regions of Canada, from British Columbia to Quebec.
    • Its marble-sized rosehips and flower petals are edible and are often used to make jams, jellies and tea. Indigenous peoples have traditionally used the wild rose to treat a number of ailments, from bee stings to muscle and stomach pains.
