Coin Story

The fourth edition of the successful butterfly series is here. It shows the Gold-banded Forester (Euphaedra neophron). It sits, virtually lifelike, in a winged 3D-technique on the silver coin and looks like it could fly away at any moment. The Gold-banded Forester is a member of the Nymphalidae family and is found in eastern and southern Africa. This graceful butterfly is mostly seen in dense tropical forests throughout the year. The main flight time lies between February and July. Even as a caterpillar, the Gold-banded Forester shows a remarkable array of colours. Following metamorphosis, it presents itself as a magnificent butterfly of an impressive size. The female’s wingspan reaches up to 78 mm. The delicate wing colouring runs from the inside outward and from light to dark blue. The broad orange-black stripes on the wing tips and the beautiful metallic shimmer create the characteristic play of colours of the Gold-banded Forester.

Reverse Design

The reverse depicts an Euphaedra Neophron butterfly in 3D. The image is very colourful and detailed, and the butterfly seems to sit on the coin (due to the 3D optics). A very special coin!

Obverse Design

The front of the coin depicts the republic of Central Africa coat of arms. The name of the issuing nation ‘REPUBLIQUE CENTRAFRICANE’ appears along the top edge and the face value of ‘1000 Francs CFA’ is indicated in the exergue.


The Papillons Exotiques 3D - Euphaedra Neophron coin comes in a special designed case with a Certificate of Authenticity.
