In England the peony is sometimes referred to as the ‘rose royale’ and the Chinese word for peony means ‘the most beautiful’. Peonies have been painted by many European artists and the opulent beauty of the peony has long been a popular subject in Chinese and Japanese literature, painting and decoration. A Chinese legend has it that a capricious empress commanded all the flowers in her garden to blossom at the same time. All acquiesced apart from the peony. Annoyed by the flower’s refusal, the empress banished it to the coldest reaches of the empire, yet despite the inhospitable environment, the peony thrived. The empress, duly impressed, allowed the peony to return, declaring it the ‘queen of all 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.

Like all the coins in The Language of Flowers series, The Chamomile features an imprint of real flowers. Faithful to the tiniest detail, they are pressed using a special technique that captures them in their natural state. In the language of flowers, chamomile signifies ‘strength in difficult situations’ and ‘energy in adversity”. This makes perfect sense given chamomile’s numerous healing and magical properties, uplifting scent and delightful daisy-like flowers.

Known to the ancient Egyptians, Greeks and Romans and used for centuries to heal a wide range of maladies, chamomile was believed by the Anglo-Saxons to be one of nine sacred herbs with special powers to fend off illness and evil. This unassuming yet powerful herb has a history of use in magic spells for peace, purification, protection and self-esteem. It is also said to have magical abilities to attract luck, love and prosperity and to release the pain of lost love and help people let go of grudges, guilt and anger. Humans are not alone in enjoying the many benefits of chamomile, as the beautifully scented, easy-growing herb is also known as the ‘plant doctor’ and if placed next to ailing or weak plants is thought to help strengthen them.

Next to an ornamental side image of chamomiles, which is stylishly printed in colour, the coin’s reverse features imprints of real chamomiles in bloom. On the coin’s obverse, chamomile flowers adorn the hair of a determined-looking young woman who symbolises vitality. On her shoulder sits a phoenix, a mythical bird that has stood for renewal and rebirth since ancient times. Beyond her the silhouette of a spear is visible.

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.

The black stork is an unmistakable bird species. The adult has mainly black plumage with white underparts, long coral red legs and a long pointed beak. The beak and eye areas are the same colour as the legs, and the black plumage has an intense greenish-purple sheen. Adults weigh between around 2.4 kg and 3.2 kg. Black storks are distributed throughout most of Europe and Asia, and most forest areas of Slovakia are nesting sites for these birds. They typically nest in mature deciduous and mixed forests, preferring areas with wetlands and watercourses where they can forage for food. They select large trees with strong horizontal branches and show high fidelity to breeding sites and nesting trees. The base of the nest is formed by thick branches, while the interior is lined with twigs, clumps of grass, lichens and moss. The female lays two to four eggs. Both parents feed the fledglings by regurgitating food onto the nest floor. Black storks feed on smaller fish, amphibians, insects, gastropods, small mammals and small birds. They migrate to wintering grounds mainly in August and September. In Slovakia, the black stork is a protected species.
Obverse:
The obverse of the euro collector coin depicts a black stork hunting on a body of water. In the background is a tree with a stork’s nest. An adult stork is depicted flying towards a chick in the nest, carrying food in its beak. On the upper left side is the Slovak coat of arms and, above it, the year of issuance ‘2023’. On the right side is the mint mark of the Kremnica Mint (Mincovňa Kremnica), consisting of the letters ‘MK’ placed between two dies. Inscribed along part of the right edge is the name of the issuing country ‘SLOVENSKO’.

Reverse:
The reverse design depicts a black stork taking flight. To the right of this image are the denomination ‘5’ and currency ‘EURO’, one above the other. In the lower part of the design, next to the stork’s legs, are the stylised initials ‘MŠ’, referring to the coin’s designer Marie Šeborová. Inscribed along the lower edge and separated by a medial dot are the Slovak and scientific names for the black stork: ‘BOCIAN ČIERNY’ and ‘CICONIA NIGRA’.
