2013 50-cent Butterflies of Canada - Tiger Swallowtail Silver Plated

Canadian Tiger Swallowtail: Harbinger of Spring

The Canadian Tiger Swallowtail (Papilio canadensis) is one of Canada's most recognizable butterflies. With its broad wingspan of up to ten centimetres and the distinctive yellow and black tiger stripe pattern on its wings and body, the Canadian Tiger Swallowtail is a striking feature of springtime in Canada.

This silver-plated copper coin has a diameter of 42 millimetres and features selective colour. The reverse image, designed by Canadian artist Celia Godkin, depicts a colourful Canadian Tiger Swallowtail resting on a coloured dandelion (Taraxacum officinale). The reverse is engraved with the word 'CANADA,' the date '2013,' and the face value of '50 CENTS.'

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
