This is the third coin of a much sought-after series featuring hand-crafted Venetian glass insects.
The purple cornflower is a favourite among Canadian gardeners not only for its easy maintenance, but its ability to attract gorgeous butterflies like the eastern tailed blue. This tiny butterfly, one of Canada’s smallest and loveliest, can be found across southeastern Canada from New Brunswick to southeastern Saskatchewan. This coin is a fantastic collector’s item as well as a unique and beautiful gift to commemorate a birthday, holiday, a graduation, the coming of spring or any other occasion.

Canadian artist Maurice Gervais presents a stunning engraved and painted purple coneflower bloom. The flower features a red-orange tubiflora centre and bright purple petals sitting atop a realistic green stem with two smooth leaves. Perched atop the flower’s lower-right petals is a jewel-like Venetian glass eastern tailed blue, hand-crafted by renowned Italian master glassmaker Giuliano Donaggio. The base of each dark blue-tinted translucent wings sports an orange dot. The reverse also features the word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “20 DOLLARS.”
