The Language of Flowers

10 Euro Coin 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 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. 

None of the principal flower images in the series is based on a drawing or illustration: the starting point of every coin design is a real flower grown in the garden, which is then pressed using a special technique that captures the flower in its natural state.

Opening with the rose, the series continues with the dandelion, marigold, forget-me-not, chamomile, peony and violet.
