2015 $20 Fine Silver Coin Forest of Canada : Columbian Yew Tree

The Columbia forest is found in a series of mountain ranges located roughly 600 kilometres from the Pacific coast in southeastern British Columbia. It is the world’s only inland temperate rainforest and the only temperate rainforest where the majority of its moisture falls as snow instead of rain. The Western Yew, an highly-adaptive, slow-growing and long-lived tree is also one of the few coniferae species that does not have cones. Instead, the Western Yew produces individual seeds that are protected by fleshy, berry-like casings that look like red rubies sitting atop its slender twigs.

DESIGN

Canadian artist Julius Csotonyi has created a stunning reverse design that celebrates the beauty of the Columbian forest by portraying one of its most captivating trees; the Western Yew. The design’s foreground features a gently sloping twig that has been painstakingly enhanced in colour to immediately draw the eye to its ruby red fruit and slender, vibrant green needles. In the background, massive tree trunks and lush growth fill the remainder of the design.
