2003 STERLING SILVER & GOLD PLATED 50-CENT COIN - GOLDEN DAFFODIL
It is difficult to believe that such captivating blooms would prefer to reveal themselves in the harsher regions of the world, but that is precisely the case with the daffodil. A native of Europe and the Mediterranean, the daffodil mystified early civilizations by breathing vibrant life into the gray and barren landscape of spring a reassuring sign that the natural world was about to be reborn. It is not surprising then, that this messenger of hope became the floral emblem for March, the month when spring begins. Today, these springtime blooms continue to fill us with an uplifting sense of optimism. And while daffodils may also represent unrequited love, respect and chivalry, wherever they appear, the space around them always seems brighter.
