2015 Shades of Nature Butterfly 25g Gilded Silver Coin
Second coin in series, the Shades of Nature Butterfly: the laser technology creates intricate details and matt finish on coin surface. The coin is a superb example of micro minting. The butterfly, with all its details, seems to be real!
The Blue Nawab or Polyura schreiber is a butterfly which is mainly found in Singapore but also in other tropical areas in Asia. The colourful insect stands out with its eye catching pattern and a wingspan of up to 115 mm.
The green caterpillars are particularly remarkable. They weave a silk resting place on a few leaves of the plant they inhabit. This is where they rest during the day, in order to recover from their nightly feasting tours.

Just like the first coin of this series, the 2015 issue shows amazing detail by means of precision laser engraving. Furthermore, smartminting© has enabled a hitherto unknown interplay of finesse and high relief. It seems as if the butterfly literally jumps out of the coin.
The reverse face has the Ian Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II on it, and is issued under the authority of the Cook Islands.
This collector’s coin is rounded off with stylised packaging and a certificate of authenticity is enclosed.
