2023 Canada $20 Sparkle of the Heart Fine Silver Coin

T
he spring-blooming tulip symbolizes perfect love on any occasion, but that meaning is amplified on this Sparkle of the Heart coin, where rows upon rows of tulips surround a perfectly cut Canadian Fire and Ice™ diamond set in a Dancing Diamond™ mount. Like a burst of sunshine, yellow gold plating highlights select elements, including the tulips closest to the sparkling centrepiece, which flutters and flashes its irresistible sparkle at the slightest movement—an effect that will captivate time and time again. It's a flawless expression of pure devotion and unconditional love, one that endures all and stands the test of time.

Some of the most spectacular tulip displays can be found each May in the National Capital Region (Ottawa-Gatineau), where the Canadian Tulip Festival attracts hundreds of thousands of visitors annually. Since 1953, the festival celebrates a historic gift of tulips that have come to symbolize the enduring friendship between Canada and the Netherlands. After the Second World War, the Dutch royal family sent 100,000 tulip bulbs to Ottawa in gratitude for Canada’s role in the Liberation of the Netherlands, and for having sheltered the future Queen Juliana and her family—including Princess Margriet, who was born in Ottawa in 1943 and attended the festival in 2022—during the war. That initial royal gift became an annual tradition, and today, over a million colourful tulips bloom in flowers beds and parks across Ottawa.

Enhanced with selective gold plating, your coin’s reverse features an engraved floral design by Canadian artist Anna Bucciarelli. Depicted in various stages of bloom, the stylized tulips and the foliage that form each heart shape are arranged in a circle to represent never-ending love. At the centre of the coin, a Canadian Fire and Ice™ diamond is set in a tulip-themed Dancing Diamond™ mount fashioned by Canadian-owned and operated Beverly Hills Jewellers. The selectively gold-plated 3D diamond cage features an oval-shaped opening that provides a view of the precious stone and its every movement. The engraved floral arrangement repeats on the coin’s obverse, which features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt, along with the text “CANADA”, a face value of “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2023”.
