Delicate shades of pink fill this fine silver collectable coin to breathtaking effect, calling to mind the splendour of a blooming Kwanzan cherry tree, as can be seen in many parks and neighbourhoods throughout Canada in the spring. The springtime blossom of the cherry tree is an ancient symbol in Japanese culture that has long been celebrated in poetry and art and continues to inspire cross-cultural festivals to this day. Vancouver's famous Cherry Blossom Festival is a colourful annual celebration, while farther east, the cherry trees that bloom in Toronto's High Park stand as living symbols of friendship between Canada and Japan.
