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.

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
