The bright and colourful wing patterns of the Monarch butterfly are captured beautifully in this full colour sterling silver collectable coin. Of the 24,000 species of butterflies in the world, Canada is home to 297 of them, including the captivating Monarch (Danaus plexippus). Its bright orange wings with thick, dark veins and black borders spotted in white produce a bold design one isn't likely to forget. Every year, millions of Monarchs flutter their way from southern Canada to central Mexico 4,000 km (2,489 mi) away to escape winter's cold.
