Product Details


The Balsam Poplar (Populus balsamifera), one of Canada's hardiest deciduous trees. No other North American hardwood grows this far north.

While the Balsam Poplar prefers to grow near water, it is also found amongst the conifer forests that dominate the landscape of Canada. The reverse of this coin features a colourized branch with a single male flower, called a catkin. These flowers are a sign of Spring throughout North America, and this coin depicts the Balsam Poplar in it's favoured habit near open water.

Limited mintage of 8500 makes this perfect for nature lovers and collectors alike!

This coin ships in a coin capsule held in an RCM branded clam shell box.
