The Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) celebrates spring with this magnificent coin dedicated to the Preston Lilac, and its creator Isabella Preston (1881-1965). Preston, Canada's first female hybridist, created almost 200 new hybrids in her 26-year career at the Central Experimental Farm in Ottawa, Ontario. This gorgeous 2017 Lilac Blossoms proof is struck from 3/4 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver, measures 36.07 mm in diameter, and weighs 23.17 g, with a mintage limited to 10,000 coins.

Bold color and textured engraving

A blooming lilac bush enhanced with dramatic purples and greens adorns the reverse, designed by Canadian artist Jan Poynter, accompanied by enlarged views of flower clusters and individual blooms with four petals. "CANADA 2017" curves above the lovely image, with "15 DOLLARS" below.

The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt graces the obverse, framed by a beaded border and inscribed "ELIZABETH II D. G. REGINA"
