2017 Canada 50 Dollar 3-oz Silver Monarch Migration Proof
A Fluttering Beauty in All of Its Wonder!
The butterfly is one of those natures of wonder that illustrates both its beauty and its delicacy. Children and adults alike are drawn to the butterfly for its stunning appearance and graceful fluttering around gardens, forests, and other natural settings. Their colors have also drawn the attention of artists, who try to convey their color and charm. While butterflies are generally thought of as soft and delicate, the intrepid monarch is a strong flyer and is the only insect that migrates over 2,500 miles. Each year, butterflies go through four generations, which is why the creature stands as a symbol of transformation and hope. Let this coin fill you with wonder just as the butterfly does in nature.
