A Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art!
The design by Canadian wildlife artist Julius Csotonyi features a springtime scene beautifully crafted in vibrant, full color. A stand of flowering dogwood and black plum trees rises above the calm waters of a tranquil lake. However, all is not as meets the eye! Upon closer examination, a monarch butterfly emerges from the scene! One wing lies outstretched among the branches while the other is a reflection in the water. A northern map turtle lingers near the shore, providing the perfect shape for the butterfly’s body and eye.

Vibrant color and advanced finishing technology beautifully enhance the engraved optical illusion, further enhancing this fascinating, mind-bending wildlife coin!
