Description of obverse and reverse The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The reverse image centres on a stunningly rendered Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea) bloom. The engraved and painted flower’s instantly recognizable red-orange tubiflora centre and bright purple petals sit atop a realistic green stem with two smooth leaves. A jewel-like Venetian glass Eastern Tailed Blue is perched on the flower’s lower right petals, its dark blue-tinted translucent wings rendered in matchless detail, with their orange dots at the base of each hind wing. The reverse also features the word «CANADA», the date «2013» and the face value of «20 DOLLARS».
A brief annotation This coin features Canadian flora with one-of-a-kind glass insect. One of Canada’s smallest and loveliest natural works of art, the Eastern Tailed Blue is found across southeastern Canada, from New Brunswick to southeastern Saskatchewan. The Eastern Tailed Blue looks for relatively low-growing flowers whose nectar is easy to access. One of the Eastern Tailed Blue’s favourite flowering plants is the Purple Coneflower (Echinacea purpurea), a hearty North American native perennial that begins blooming late June and continue into early fall.
Designer Maurice Gervais (coin design); Giuliano Donaggio (glass butterfly) a master glassmaker in Murano, Italy.

Цветок выглядит натурально. А вот бабочка какая-то игрушечная. Применение венецианского стекла порадовало.
