2015 $250 PURE GOLD COINS FLORA AND FAUNA 5-COIN SET

In 2011, the Royal Canadian Mint became the first Mint in the world to issue a coin featuring a Venetian glass element. The engraved silver coin’s reverse bore a beautiful coloured tulip bloom embellished with a delicate Venetian glass ladybug. Each ladybug was hand-crafted from Venetian glass—renowned for its intense colour and gem-like clarity—by a master glassmaker in Murano, Italy. This world first was the flagship release in what has become an annual series of stunning painted flora-themed coins embellished with Venetian glass fauna, all with a uniquely Canadian twist. Now you can own every release from this extraordinarily beautiful series—struck in the Royal Canadian Mint’s world-class 99.99% pure gold.

Designed by Canadian artist Maurice Gervais, the coloured reverse of each coin features a selectively painted and engraved image of a species of Canadian flora embellished with a Venetian glass element handcrafted by Giuliano Donaggio, a master glass-maker in Murano, Italy.
- Tulip and Ladybug – The coin that started it all! A red and black Venetian glass ladybug sits on the bright green leaf of a red tulip.
- Aster and Bumble Bee – A Venetian glass Yellow-Banded Bumble Bee perches delicately on the golden heart of an engraved and coloured purple aster.
- Purple Coneflower and Eastern Tailed Blue Butterfly – A bright, red-spotted indigo Venetian glass butterfly perches on the pink petals of a coneflower, about to feed from the spiky engraved orange tubiflora at the flower’s centre.
- Water Lily and Leopard Frog – A grass-green and chartreuse Venetian glass frog sits on a brightly painted water lily leaf beside a stunningly detailed painted and engraved yellow water lily blossom.
