This large 35 mm diameter 25 cent coin features a striking purple coneflower bloom with a red-orange tubiflora centre and bright purple petals sitting atop a realistic green stem with two smooth leaves. Perched atop the flower's lower-right petals is an Eastern Tailed Blue butterfly, its dark purple-blue wings outlined in black and white, with orange dots at the base of each hind wing. The reverse also features the word "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "25 CENTS."

The purple cornflower is a favourite among Canadian gardeners not only for its easy maintenance, but its ability to attract butterflies like the eastern tailed blue. This tiny butterfly, one of Canada's smallest and most beautiful, can be found across southeastern Canada from New Brunswick to southeastern Saskatchewan.

very special

I am not a coin collector but could not resist this one. I have lupus and the butterfly is the symbol for lupus. This coin is simply gorgeous. I ordered it hoping I could make a pendant out of it. I called the mint but it is not possible to do that with this coin because of the size. There is no way I would even consider sending it back. Simply gorgeous
