In England, the peony is sometimes referred to as the "rose royale" and the Chinese word for peony means "the most beautiful." Peonies have been painted by many European artists and the opulent beauty of the peony has long been a popular subject in Chinese and Japanese literature, painting and decoration. A Chinese legend has it that a capricious empress commanded all the flowers in her garden to blossom at the same time. All acquiesced apart from the peony. Annoyed by the flower’s refusal, the empress banished it to the coldest reaches of the empire, yet despite the inhospitable environment, the peony thrived. The empress, duly impressed, allowed the peony to return, declaring it the "queen of all flowers."

We only have a matter of days in which to enjoy its flowers, so we should appreciate the ephemeral beauty of the peony while we can as, like shooting stars burning fleetingly in the night sky, it is a thing of wonder.

Language of Flowers Series
Whether to convey feelings of love, desire and friendship, congratulations and condolence, declarations of intent and even forbidden and unspeakable things, flowers have been used as a form of language throughout recorded history, each country and culture with its own version. The Language of Flowers series brings this age-old custom back to life and discusses the meanings, folklore, properties and uses of seven well-known flowers. The messages conveyed by those flowers are inspirational, so too is the technology used to bring nature to life on the coins. Opening with the rose, the series continues with the dandelion, marigold, forget-me-not, chamomile, peony and violet.

In all major religions, flowers are linked to the miracle of love, which has led to their main symbolic meanings. With its exceptionally beautiful petals, intoxicating scent and the delicacy of its unfurling blooms that suggest lips parting for a kiss, sensuality and fertility, the rose has indeed been an important symbol of love in its many forms for centuries.
