The second coin in the Language of Flowers series is dedicated to a plant that divides public opinion. For some the dandelion is just an annoying weed, while for others it is the most underappreciated of plants. Whichever side of the debate you are on, the dandelion is undoubtedly one of the most joyful signs that winter is over and spring has arrived.

The dandelion’s golden-yellow flower, serrated leaves and spherical puff of seeds make it instantly recognisable. Unlike most other plants, the dandelion accounts for numerous myths and superstitions that are specifically related to its seed head. Some say that wishes made while blowing off the plant’s seeds will be granted, others that you can send a message to a loved one by concentrating on what you would like to convey while blowing the seeds in their direction. It therefore comes as no surprise that the dandelion represents ‘a wish come true’ in the language of flowers. This idea is beautifully illustrated on the coin’s obverse in the shape of a young woman with flowers in her hair blowing dandelion seeds. Next to an ornamental side image of a dandelion, which is stylishly printed in colour, the coin’s reverse features an imprint of a real dandelion with open and closed flowers.

Humans have used dandelions both as a foodstuff and herbal remedy for centuries; they also provide an important source of food for birds and insects early in the season. Many believe the plant to have mystical and magical qualities, with much of its folklore relating to its ability to answer questions or bring good luck. Dandelions are also linked to perseverance, strength in adversity, clarity of purpose and are thought to impart lion-like courage. They are even said to represent the qualities of warmth, radiance, illumination, healing, hope, transformation and growth. So, what’s not to love about this resilient little ‘weed’?
