10 euro silver coin dedicated to the Rose and its meaning, Love and Desire, PROOF.
First coin of the series "The Language of Flowers".
The enduring popularity of the rose has given it many more meanings than most other flowers. Among the most culturally significant of all flowers, the rose has played an important role in art, poetry, literature and commerce. In all major religions it is linked to the miracle of love, which has led to its main symbolic meaning in the language of flowers. With its exceptionally beautiful petals, intoxicating scent and the delicacy of its unfurling blooms, which suggests lips parting for a kiss, not to mention availability, sensuality and fertility, the rose has indeed been an important symbol of love in its many forms for centuries.
