This exceptionally beautiful 2013 $20 coin is the third coin in the Royal Canadian Mint’s sought-after series featuring engraved and painted Canadian flora with one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted Venetian glass insects created by Giuliano Donaggio, a master glassmaker in Murano, Italy. This is the third coin in a series of world-renowned Royal Canadian Mint coins featuring one-of-a-kind Venetian glass embellishments on beautifully engraved and painted flowers native to Canada. Mintage 10,000. HST/GST exempt.

The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, the reverse image centres on a stunningly rendered Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) bloom. The engraved and painted flower’s instantly recognizable red-orange tubiflora centre and bright purple petals sit atop a realistic green stem with two smooth leaves. A jewel-like Venetian glass Eastern Tailed Blue, hand-crafted by Giuliano Donaggio, a master glassmaker in Murano, Italy, perches on the flower’s lower right petals, its dark blue-tinted translucent wings rendered in matchless detail, with their orange dots at the base of each hind wing.

An excellent collectible for nature lovers, wildflower enthusiasts, conservationists, and lovers of Canadiana.
