The purple violet (Violacucullata), featured in stunning detail on this pure gold collectable coin, is New Brunswick's official floral emblem. This particular violet is identified by the thick, rounded hairs on the beards of the lower side petals and a darker purple at the base of the petal. In addition for being cherished for its beauty, it has long been valued by Canada's aboriginal people as a food source and by European settlers for its medicinal properties.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
