Product Description

Three different hand blown Venetian Murano glass insects make their homes on vibrantly colored flowers in this extremely desirable 3-coin proof set! Each coin is struck in 5 troy ounces of pure silver, with a mintage of just 850!,
Investment Opportunity! In combining the hand-blown beauty of Murano Venetian glass with its unique colorization process, the Royal Canadian Mint has created a world first! Some of the natural world’s most incredible wonders are also its tiniest! Cute or creepy-crawly, many little creatures can be found in our own backyards and gardens - or on this superb coin, handcrafted and hand blown by master glassmaker Giuliano Donaggio in Murano, Italy, with a second technology, the Mint's proprietary colorization, thrown in for good measure! Struck in 5 troy ounces of the purest silver in the world with a proof finish and presented in a solid Canadian maple wood display case, each coin has a tiny mintage limit of just 850 - far too few to satisfy worldwide demand. A quick sell out at the Mint (as in previous years) is expected!
