DESIGN

This coin’s reverse design is punctuated by a vivid Murano glass monarch caterpillar that was handcrafted by master glassmakers Bernardino and Giorgio Vio, in Murano, Italy; its yellow, black and white stripes are the tell-tale sign it is a monarch larva. The glass monarch caterpillar is poised on the leaf of a swamp milkweed plant designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais that has been selectively coloured to showcase the plant’s long leaves, and its clusters of pink flowers to best effect.
