Coin Story

Butterflies are part of the class of Insects in the order Lepidoptera. Adult butterflies have large, often brightly coloured wings, and conspicuous, fluttering flight. The group comprises the "true butterflies" , the "skippers" and the "moth-butterflies". Butterfly fossils date to the mid Eocene epoch, 40–50 million years ago. Butterflies exhibit polymorphism, mimicry and aposematism. Some, like the Monarch, will migrate over long distances. Some butterflies have parasitic relationships with organisms including protozoans, flies, ants, other invertebrates, and vertebrates. Some species are pests because in their larval stages they can damage domestic crops or trees; however, some species are agents of pollination of some plants, and caterpillars of a few butterflies eat harmful insects. Culturally, butterflies are a popular motif in the visual and literary arts.

Reverse Design

The reveres captures a (venetian glas) butterfly sitting on a beautifully designed purple coneflower. The flower and the butterfly are coloured and therefore, they offset themselves from the silver background.

Obverse Design

The obverse of the coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
