The Design of the 2016 $20 The Colourful Wings of a Butterfly Silver Coin
Designed by the talented Canadian artist Bonnie Ross, the reverse side portrays a breathtaking butterfly with its wings gracefully spread, perched upon an oxeye sunflower bloom. The intricate detailing on the butterfly's outspread wings is further enhanced by individually carved agate gemstones, each measuring 10 millimeters in length and 4 millimeters in height. The butterfly becomes the focal point, exuding beauty and charm amidst the finely engraved oxeye sunflower that dominates the reverse field. The craftsmanship involves various engraving and finishing techniques, resulting in an incredible level of detail on the blossom, with its two striated leaves and stem visible in the background. The reverse also bears the engravings "CANADA," "2016," and the face value of "20 DOLLARS." The obverse, on the other hand, presents the elegant effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, skillfully crafted by Susanna Blunt.
