2014 Canada $10 Dragonfly - Green Darner Fine Silver (#2) (No Tax)

The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's exciting Dragonfly series of painted dragonflies set in hologram habitats features the striking Anax junius - the Green Darner.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features a painted Anax junius set displayed against a three-dimensional hologram. Rendered in finest detail, the dragonfly is presented from its right side. Its delicately veined transparent wings are fully extended as the green darner flies sprightly across a lush pond. This presentation of the darner displays the large dragonfly's vast wingspan, beautiful emerald-green thorax, large green eyes, and characteristic head-top bulls-eye marking as well as its long blue "darning needle" abdomen. Its preferred summer breeding habitat is uniquely depicted in the holographic background; by capturing colour from light, this holographic image offers added dimensionality and movement to the reverse image. Spectacular vegetation lines the water's edge in the top portion of the background. Below, adjacent trees are reflected on the pond's mirror-like surface. In the centre, lily pads float on the shimmering water's surface - a welcome respite for the dragonfly on a warm summer day.
