2013 Canadian 25-Cent Purple Coneflower and Eastern Tailed Blue - Coloured Coin

The purple cornflower is a favourite among Canadian gardeners not only for its easy maintenance, but its ability to attract gorgeous butterflies like the eastern tailed blue. This tiny butterfly, one of Canada’s smallest and loveliest, can be found across southeastern Canada from New Brunswick to southeastern Saskatchewan. This coin is a fantastic collector’s item as well as a unique and beautiful gift to commemorate a birthday, a holiday, a graduation, the coming of spring or any other occasion.

This is the third coin in a series of world-renowned Royal Canadian Mint coins featuring insects on beautifully engraved and painted flowers native to Canada.
Your coin is the affordable cupronickel version of its pure-silver-with-glass counterpart.


Canadian artist Maurice Gervais presents a stunning engraved and painted purple coneflower bloom. The flower features 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, 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.”


Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve.
