Delicate and graceful, the monarch butterfly flits from one plant to the next,
dancing merrily through the sky in search of the perfect flower — like the standout bloom on the reverse of this movement coin from the Royal Canadian Mint. A monarch butterfly may travel up to 5,000 kilometres during its two-way migration, and it truly is a wonder to observe – both in nature and on this 99.99% pure silver coin – as it selects one special flower out of the millions it has passed over.
Here one minute, gone the next. Experience one of nature’s most delicate moments, as a monarch butterfly approaches a flower. Tilt the coin and watch as the gravity-activated monarch circles around the aster bloom.
