Arethusa. A captivating nymph and companion to the moon goddess Artemis in Greek mythology.

According to legend, she unknowingly bathed in a river belonging to the river god Alpheus, whom she inadvertently seduced with her beauty. Arethusa, wanting nothing of his advances, fled her home in Arcadia. Relentlessly pursued by Alpheus, she sought help from Artemis. The latter transformed the nymph into a stream under the sea, which emerges as a water fountain on the island of Ortygia in Syracuse, Sicily. The Syracusan coins with Arethusa’s image are said to be among the most stunning of ancient Greece and regularly achieve record prices at auctions.

British Columbia's floral emblem isn't so much a flower, but a flowering tree– a unique trait that sets the Pacific dogwood apart from our other provincial and territorial blooms. The showy white flowers on our sixth Floral Emblems of Canada coin appear each spring, and occasionally in September too. The tree itself, Cornus nuttallii, is a four-season beauty that can grow as high as 18 metres. And while the flowering dogwood was a popular image in British Columbia prior to 1956, the Floral Emblem Act assured its position as the official symbol of Canada's westernmost province

As the King of the gods, Zeus‘ connection with Leo is appropriate as it is the "king of the Zodiac signs". The connection gains a lot more weight in mythology: Zeus is closely associated with Helios, perhaps even more so than Apollo, as Helios is referred as "the eye of Zeus" and is referred as Zeus in his own Orphic hymn. Aether (the primordial light that illumines the Heavens) is "Zeus' power", and his role as the god of civilization, justice and law is very similar to that of sun gods like Shamash and Ra (Apollo also shares these traits, as he too is a god of justice and law). Zeus is outright referred as the Sun in some particular Greco-roman religious traditions like Pythagorean philosophy, where he is the supramundane Sun of the Olympians.As the Sun symbolizes the center, so is Leo's position in the Zodiac indicative.

This amazing coin is CIT’s 3rd release in a series honoring the famous Fabergé eggs. The first two editions were sold out immediately and we expect this gorgeous specimen to do the same. This coin honors the famous “Rosebud” Fabergé egg. Originally created by Michael Perchin under the careful eye of master jeweler Peter Carl Fabergé in 1895, it was given to Empress Alexandra Feodorovna by Czar Nicholas II of Russia. The magnificent egg was created to remind the Empress of the yellow roses that she missed dearly from her homelands.

The egg itself is covered in red enamel and decorated with wreaths and swags of varicolored gold. There are four bands of rose-cut diamonds that run vertically across the egg and each end also had diamonds. One end shows a miniature picture of Nicholas II and the other end shows the year 1895. As with most Fabergé eggs, there were surprises inside. The first surprise was an enameled yellow rose that opened up and revealed a miniature Imperial crown made of rose-cut diamonds and two cabochon rubies. The other surprise is a ruby pendant. Both surprises are lost to history but the enameled yellow rose remains. The egg now sits in the Fabergé Museum in Saint Petersburg, Russia and was part of a 9-egg collection that was purchased from Malcom Forbes for $100 million.

Our 2-ounce silver proof is a worthy tribute to this impressive treasure and captures all of the colorful details of the original. The high relief showcases all the golden ridges and the bright red color of the enamel. This beautiful egg is set against an elegant and ornate proof silver background. Only 888 will be struck.
