Presenting the third Black and Gold coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. One of the things nature does best is balance, and the sea otter is the perfect example: this adorable creature works hard, but it also makes time to float arm-in-arm (or paw-in-paw) with a loved one. Once hunted to the point of extinction on Canada's Pacific coast, the sea otter hos been reintroduced to its farmer habitat, where its appetite keeps sea urchin populations in check-this, in turn, helps to protect the kelp forests that are home to hundreds of other species. lt's all about balance, which is beautifully represented on this coin's dual-plated reverse.

The circular reverse design by wildlife artist Claude Thivierge features a contrasting “yin and yang” portrait of the sea otter (Enhydra lutris). Two adult sea otters are positioned in a way that represents opposite but complementary concepts, such as work and rest/play. Yellow gold and black rhodium plating clearly divide the design into two halves in order to highlight the importance of achieving balance in life, but also in nature, where the sea otter’s reintroduction to Canada’s Pacific coast has had a big impact on the marine ecosystem. The obverse features the gold-plated effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

The purple violet is a water-loving perennial herb–if it's not growing in water, it's likely growing near it. Its blue-centred blooms will catch your eye from May to July, when they add a punch of colour to meadows, bogs and open woodlands. New Brunswick's official flower is one of several Canadian emblems that were selected by means of public input.

While Iris versicolor can be found in marshes and along shorelines in central and eastern Canada, it has special meaning in the province of Quebec. This violet-blue wildflower is synonymous with wetlands, rivers and lakes in La belle province, where the provincial emblem blooms between late May and early July. Quebec was one of the first four Canadian provinces established by the British North America Act (Confederation) in 1867. And that's why its provincial flower is our second coin in our vintage jewellery-inspired Floral Emblems of Canada series. And, your coin's reverse features a colourful depiction of the blue flag iris, which gained official status as the floral emblem of Quebec in 1999.
A gorgeous gift of Quebec's beautiful blue flag iris for that special someone. Order today.
