This collectable sterling silver coin features a beautiful hologram of a Silvery Blue Butterfly. There are about a dozen subspecies of Silvery Blue (Glaucopsyche lygdamus) but only one of them is found in Canada. It can be seen in every province and territory as far north as the Northwest Territories, but is rarely seen in southwestern Ontario. The edges of the wings feature a dark grey border which is usually wider in the females and often infuses the entire surface of the wing with grey. The underside is grey throughout, with a single row of round spots that are black with white rims.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
