2020 Canadian Floral Emblems of Canada Series - Quebec: Blue Flag Iris Proof Silver Coin
The reverse design by Canadian artist Lisa Thomson-Khan features a stylized floral pattern on the outer ring, while the inner core features a colour portrait of the official floral emblem of Quebec, the blue flag iris (Iris versicolor). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
"I designed the series to evoke sentiments of antique hand-painted art, with vibrant colours and bold strokes that are reminiscent of a Victorian style. Inspired by the decorative filigree of fine silver, the ornate decorative border was purposely designed to complement the flowers, using stylized elements that move and twist across the surface like vines and leaves."
