Eclecticism is the combination or mixing of different styles, theories or ideas in order to gain complementary knowledge on a subject. The term comes from the Greek eklektikos, “to choose the best”, and that from eklektos, “picked out, select”. We have embraced this approach of choosing only the best for our 2nd edition of the «Eclectic Nature» series.

The veiled chameleon is a remarkable species that hails from the arid regions of Yemen and Saudi Arabia. The most notable feature is a large, elaborate bony protrusion atop its head, which is called a casque. Both males and females sport this fancy headgear, which allegedly serves to channel water droplets down into the reptiles’ mouths, a crucial adaptation in their dry habitats.

The eye-catching European Roller, with its radiant turquoise and azure plumage, is native to parts of Europe, northern Africa and Asia.

As marigolds turn their heads to follow the trajectory of the sun from east to west, they suggest things are moving forward. Combined with their bright colours, this has led to meanings of joy, gratitude, warmth, affection, peace, protection, contentment and understanding. It’s little wonder that some people refer to the third flower in the Language of Flowers series as ‘the sunshine herb’.

Marigolds encompass numerous plants from entirely different species, the two most common being Calendula and Tagetes. They both belong to the Asteraceae family, are easily mistaken for one another and have many common properties. Conveniently, the two species also have the same basic meanings in the language of flowers, many of which focus on positivity and patience. With their golden hues and positive energy, marigolds are said to bring light into any situation and have the ability to illuminate and guide us when faced with challenges.

Their strong connection with the sun means that marigolds are also associated with heat, passion, sex and love. Apparently, both Calendula and Tagetes can be used in spells relating to passion, creativity and warmth and have also been used in love potions and spells to maintain devotion for the long term. Marigolds also have multiple culinary uses and health benefits, and these cheerful, exceptionally long-flowering and easy-to-grow flowers are perfect for brightening our gardens and homes.

Symbolising positivity, the coin’s obverse shows a young woman with her eyes closed and flowers in her hair enjoying the scent of a marigold. Next to an ornamental side image of a marigold, the reverse of the coin features a pair of marigolds, both of which are imprints of real flowers.

As its name implies, the forget-me-not signifies ‘remember me’ in the language of flowers. But alongside other literal meanings of its common name, the forget-me-not is also a symbol of profound love, remembrance, fidelity and constancy. Giving the flowers at the start of an illicit love affair could be a discreet way to convey a need for trust and confidentiality. Although passionate and romantic love are important elements of their meaning, forget-me-nots can signify deep friendship and familial love as well. In addition, forget-me-nots can be used to convey that the bonds of true love transcend time and space and will continue to exist despite physical separation and even death. Each spring forget-me-nots create a delightful froth of intense blue flowers are a particularly welcome sight when not much else is in bloom. Unlike many other symbolic meanings associated with flowers, those of the forget-me-not have endured – rather like the timeless love and constancy they convey.

Experience one of nature’s most delicate moments, as a monarch butterfly circles around an aster bloom.

What a joy to spot this splendid creature! Delicate and graceful, the gorgeous monarch butterfly flits from one plant to the next, dancing merrily through the sky in search of the perfect flower—like the standout bloom on this coin’s interactive reverse. A monarch butterfly may travel up to 5,000 kilometres during its two-way migration, an astounding feat for one so small and fragile! It truly is a wonder to observe, both in nature and on this fine silver movement coin, as it selects one special flower out of the millions it has passed over.

Tilt the coin to make the monarch fly–the moment is fleeting and full of magic.
Your coin’s reverse features two 3D elements that have each been cast in sterling silver (92.5% pure): a rose-gold plated aster flower, and a gold-plated monarch butterfly (this is the species’ first appearance on a movement coin).
Tilt the coin and watch as the gravity-activated monarch circles around the aster flower. Both feature an incredible number of details – just look at the monarch’s wing pattern.
