Black-Eyed Susan
Bringing sunshine to gardens across Canada, Rudbeckia hirta commonly known as the black eyed Susan is one of the most popular wildflowers which grow in Canada. The Royal Canadian Mint continues its celebration of Canada’s beloved floral species with this fine silver coin that features a colourful Rudbeckia hirta adorned with three sparkling Swarovski crystal elements.
One variety of Rudbeckia hirta is a biennial plant. This means that it lives for two years and has a distinct growth phase. The first year, it produces a rather unprepossessing basal rosette of leaves, and the second year, the flowering stalk we are familiar with. After flowering and going to seed, the plant dies and the seeds start the whole process over again.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Laurie Koss recreates the golden beauty of the Rudbeckia hirta or black-eyed Susan, as viewed from the front and just slightly above the flower. Like the spokes of a wheel, 12 bright yellow petals spread out from the prominent, dark brown centre cone as though each is embracing the summer sunshine after a light summer rain. This large, daisy-like blossom stands atop a terminal shoot, with a smooth-edged, dark green leaf growing outwards from the left side of the green stem. Detailed engraving beautifully recreates the leaf’s deep veins and the folds of each colourful petal; of these, three are adorned with a sparkling Swarovski crystal element that recreates the appearance of dew drops clinging to the black-eyed Susan’s petals.
