OUR LARGEST BUTTERFLY-THEMED COIN YET! Order today!

The monarch butterfly delights and enchants as it flutters through the air on boldly patterned wings. Canada's most famous butterfly is beautifully coloured on this coin, where the engraved milkweeds represent an important part of the story: it is the monarch's host plant. Its leaves are essential to sustaining the next generation of monarchs, which will press on with an epic migration that is nothing short of inspirational.

Don't let this opportunity fly away! Order today!

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Graham Spaull, your coin captures the enchanting beauty of a beloved summer resident of Canada, whose epic migration is perhaps unrivalled in the insect world. Resplendent in full colour, the monarch butterfly (Danaus plexippus) displays its orange-and-black wings as it approaches a patch of milkweeds (Asclepias). The tall, leafy stems are engraved in fine detail to represent an important part of the story: the milkweed is the monarch's host plant. It is essential to sustaining monarch populations, since the butterfly deposits its eggs on the leaves that will exclusively sustain the larvae (caterpillar). The reverse includes the face value "50 DOLLARS" and the year "2017". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with black beauty box.

Beautiful coin

I bought this for my wife for her birthday. Although not a coin collector, she has a thing for monarchs and other butterflies. Even though it's pricey, the larger size makes for a nicer gift and one can really appreciate the quality and artistry of this coin.

The coin is big, which really makes it worth the price. Also, the details on the butterfly are so good and the colours are so vibrant.
