Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
A delicate butterfly pauses to sip daisy nectar, its outspread wings glowing with crystalline beauty! In a Royal Canadian Mint first, this coin has added a semi-precious agate embellishment to an engraved 1-ounce coin of 99.99% pure silver. A Royal Canadian Mint first! With this coin, agate makes its debut as a coin embellishment. What other material could more perfectly capture the otherworldly glow of butterfly wings? Translucent agate lends the painstakingly engraved image incredible depth and colour.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Bonnie Ross features a butterfly with outspread wings poised on an oxeye sunflower bloom. The image centres on the stunning butterfly, whose outspread wings are finely engraved at the edges and embellished with individually carved agate gemstones. Each agate butterfly wing measures 10 millimetres long and 4 millimetres high. The butterfly sits at the heart of an oxeye sunflower that dominates most of the reverse field and, using various engraving and finishing techniques, is engraved in incredible detail. The blossom’s two striated leaves and stem are visible in the background.

A unique addition to your Canadiana, nature-themed, or embellished coin collection.
