The strength, beauty and sheer elegance of the Rosa ‘Queen Elizabeth’ have wowed garden lovers since its 1957 introduction. Today, sixty-five years later, expert designers and producers of Canadian coins have taken this magnificence a step further by replicating its beauty on a coin celebrating Queen Elizabeth’s rose. The coin’s stunning design combined two precious metals in order to create an impressive souvenir.
A Closer Look at the Rosa Queen Elizabeth
Rosa Queen Elizabeth is a long-stemmed flower that grows to heights as far as 1.3 metres and thrives in the sun. It is a climbing flower that often adorns garden walls, trellises and arbours. Like other roses, it is often associated with passion and romance. The flower produces a fluffy collection of petals ranging from 24-60 petals. Its pink colour often represents tenderness but can also signify gratitude, love or act as a spirit lifter.
The Beautifully Crafted Replica
Unlike the natural version (which reveals its true beauty in Summer and Fall) though, in this special coin, you’ll possess the Rosa ‘Queen Elizabeth’ in all its glory throughout the seasons. As an added perk, this coin provides an opportunity for those who missed the chance to own the popular 2016 issue of the Queen Elizabeth rose coin to acquire an equally stunning version.
The coin boasts an intricate obverse depicting an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Susanna Blunt. It also depicts the engraved words of Queen Elizabeth II D. G. Regina. This side of the coin is all silver, giving it a crisp clean finish. It is 27 millimetres in diameter and weighs 7.96 grams.
On the reverse, your eyes will be treated to a fantastic Claudio D’Angelo design displaying in its dominance, the flower in full bloom. Three petals, a large one depicting the largest stage of blooming, a medium-sized one showing the flower mid-way its blooming process and a bud are beautifully arranged to show the transitions the flower undergoes. The natural salmon pink hue of the Queen Elizabeth rose’s petals are reflected through the use of rose gold plating. The silver backdrop allows the coloured petal engravings to stand out and add extra appeal to this piece. Around the rose, you’ll find the words Canada 2019.
Value for your Money
With 99.99% pure silver composite, this coin is sure to add tremendous value to your commemorative souvenir collection. If you are just starting your collection, it is the ideal piece to start with. It is also a great gift to give because it carries high sentimental value. It is ideal for marking those special occasions such as birthdays and can be given to spouses, friends or family members. As a gift, it can be used to mark many different types of occasions ranging from birthdays to anniversaries or Mothers Day. It can also be converted into a pendant to change its use and purpose, allowing the owner to attach it to a necklace. To do this though, you would need to purchase a necklace making kit.
