This spectacular and unique $20 fine silver coin features a gemstone-adorned ladybug on a one ounce fine silver coin. The polka-dotted ladybug is one of our friendliest little garden helpers, and Canadians of all ages find it irresistible. This rhodium-plated ladybug is adorned with garnet and black sapphire gemstones that make it easy to spot, especially when its sparkle is enhanced by coin’s proof finish. In addition to being an attractive and innovative work of numismatic art, collectability is enhanced by the low mintage of just 3,000 coins. HST/GST exempt.
Designed by Jori van der Linde, the engraved floral pattern on the reverse serves as the backdrop to the jewel-like ladybug that has seemingly landed on the coin’s surface. The beloved insect is instantly recognisable by colour alone, with black and white rhodium plating providing a base for the sparkling arrangement of black sapphire and garnet gemstones. The reverse design includes the words “CANADA”, “20 DOLLARS” and the year “2020”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
