About the Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Julius T. Csotonyi, your coin features a springtime scene beautifully crafted in colour. A stand of flowering trees of dogwood and black plum rises above the calm waters of a lake, but on closer examination, a monarch butterfly emerges from the scene. One wing lies outstretched among the branches while the other is a reflection in the water. A northern map turtle lingers near the shore, providing the perfect shape for the butterfly's body and eye.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
