Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The first issue in the Royal Canadian Mint’s exciting Dragonfly series featuring coloured dragonflies set in holograms. The first coin features the beautiful Libellula pulchella—the Twelve-Spotted Skimmer.

The reverse image designed by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features a painted Libellula pulchella set against a hologram. Rendered in finest detail, the dragonfly is presented from its right side. Its lacy, brightly hued periwinkle-spotted wings, with contrasting black dots and soft blue-white colouring, are fully extended as the male Twelve-Spotted Pond Skimmer poses delicately atop a blade of pond grass. From the viewer’s vantage point, we see the Skimmer’s characteristic yellow-lined thorax and body as well as the soft blue colouring that distinguishes the mature male of the species. In the background, its natural habitat—a water lily-lined pond—is presented in a shimmering full-colour hologram, bringing sparkling movement to the water.

The hologram technology, representing the water, is used on coin to capture the full rainbow spectrum of color from any light source as the coin is tilted back and forth.

Reviewer: Akela from Mississauga, Canada  
A colorful small silver piece. Many features have been included in the relative small area: color, hologram, etc. Wish the coin can be larger to see them all clearly.Nature lovers must love it.
