Description of obverse and reverse
The reverse side depicts flakes of snow, an essential element of the Northern winter.
The Flora coin obverse: the rare glacier crowfoot thrives in severe conditions, so its ability to bloom even through snow brings a sense of fragility to the majestic field landscape. In the coin, the crowfoot is framed by moss and lichen.
A brief annotation
The Northern Nature coin series immortalises the most wonderful features of our diverse environment and celebrates the compatibility between nature and humankind.
The series consists of three coins commemorating winter, flora and fauna. In addition to a fascinating living environment, Northern environment has offered us a way of life close to nature throughout history. Maybe that is why we occasionally need a reminder of the unique qualities of the nature all around us.
