Description of obverse and reverse The reverse side depicts flakes of snow, an essential element of the Northern winter.<br> 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. <br> 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.
