It's just a "rose" - the flower for June in the floral year set: your weight is from the 1995 issue (not published anywhere to my knowledge).  A more "modern" version of the series was issued in 2000.

Only the January - Snowdrop is online on Scotland's Glass so far (although all 12 are in the queue on my hard disk).

looks like the leaf is attached to the stalk by its tip to my eye Chris
