Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This exciting new coin series brings you the fascinating art of illusion to celebrate Canada’s natural heritage with unprecedented and utterly captivating designs. Each coin features an image of the Canadian landscape, but combines natural elements in the scene to create an optical illusion of wildlife—like the monarch butterfly on this coin, the second in this series.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi features a springtime scene beautifully crafted in colour. A stand of flowering trees of dogwood and black plum rises above the calm waters of a lake, but on closer examination, a monarch butterfly emerges from the scene. One wing lies outstretched among the branches while the other is a reflection in the water. A northern map turtle lingers near the shore, providing the perfect shape for the butterfly’s body and eye.

Expertly crafted in 99.99% pure silver and beautifully enhanced with colour to perfect the optical illusion embedded within the primary design.
