The pitcher plant, the official floral emblem of Newfoundland and Labrador, is brought to life through this pure gold collectable coin. The pitcher plant is a small insectivorous plant featuring one large wine-coloured flower with a stem that’s based with hollow, pitcher-shaped leaves, and thrives in acidic bogs and marshes throughout Newfoundland and Labrador. Since its natural environment lacks vital soil nutrients other plants need to survive, the pitcher plant finds alternative energy by “digesting” insects that are trapped inside the leaves when they fill with water.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
