This strikingly-coloured coin depicting the green darner dragonfly (Anax junius) is part of the Royal Canadian Mint's popular series featuring painted dragonflies set in holograms! Dragonflies range in over 5,000 known species, and this diversity is reflected in the multitude of colours and patterns they can display. Here we see the green darner dragonfly (which can reach speeds of up to 56kph!) showing off its magnificent green and blue body against the vibrant, holographic backdrop of a shimmering marsh. Holding the coin at a 45-degree angle under the light will bring the background to life in dimensional detail, making this half-ounce fine silver coin presented in proof finish a beautiful gift and a stunning addition to any collection of nature-or-insect themed silver or specialty coins.
