Coin Story

Laser technology has become an indispensable tool in numerous branches of industry and is ideally suited to create intricate detail and matt finish on metal surfaces. We strikingly demonstrate the possibilities of laser surface refinement on our newest release – the Shades of Nature Butterfly. The blue nawab or "Polyura Schreiber" is a butterfly which is mainly found in Singapore but also in other tropical areas in Asia. The colourful insect stands out with its eye catching pattern and a wingspan of up to 115 mm. The green caterpillars are particularly remarkable. They weave a silk resting place on a few leaves of the plant they inhabit. This is where they rest during the day, in order to recover from their nightly feasting tours.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures a Butterfly sitting on a bench. The image has very fine details, which where implemented through micro minting. The Butterfly is engraved into the coin and offsets itself against the gilded background, due to its silver finish.

Obverse Design

Each coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the denomination of the coin.


The Shades of Nature - Butterfly coin comes in a presentation case with the Certificate of Authenticity.
