2014 $20 Butterflies of Canada - Red-Spotted Purple Fine Silver (No Tax)

The second coin in the Royal Canadian Mint's Butterflies of Canada series celebrates the beautiful Red-Spotted Purple.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features a profile portrait of a Red-Spotted Purple drinking nectar from the heart of a Black-Eyed Susan flower. The butterfly, engraved and painted in full glorious colour, is viewed from its right side. The viewer is presented with a lovely view of the Red-Spotted Purple's under-wing. Here we see the characteristic dark purple-black colouring, with some of the blue iridescence that characterizes most of the upper side of the delicate wing. The light blue-white markings around the wing contrast prettily with the bright red spots that give this butterfly its name. The butterfly stands on top of an engraved Black-Eyed Susan flower, drinking nectar from the flower's center.
