The Pacific Dogwood (Cornus nuttallii), the provincial floral emblem of British Columbia since 1956, is brought to life in fine detail on this pure gold collectable coin. This flower is the spring blossom of a 20 metre tree that grows along the Pacific Coast of North America from California to southern British Columbia and Vancouver Island. During spring flowering, this species is readily visible along forest edges prior to full leaf out. The large showy leaves are distinctive and eye-catching in shades of pink and white with the flower found in the centre.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
