Marking the 50th anniversary of the Canadian Tulip Festival, held annually in Ottawa, Canada's capital city, this sterling silver collectable coin highlights the simple tulip, accented with gold plating. The invasion of Holland during the Second World War forced the Dutch royal family into exile. They sought, and found, refuge in Ottawa, Canada's capital. For safeguarding her family, Princess (later Queen) Juliana thanked Canada with a personal gift of 20,000 tulip bulbs. That gift became an annual bequest and transformed Ottawa into the floral showcase that it is today.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
