      Comments about 1 oz. Pure Silver Coin – Colourful Wings of a Butterfly – Mintage: 6000 (2016):

      Definitely a different coin for a first type mintage. The coin feels as though it's missing something. Most butterfly's are far more colourful in real life than what this coin portrays. To much advertising as "agate" and not enough thought into the realism of the coin of the insect it portrays.

            I will not buy this coin, it's expensive and reminds me of the dragonfly I bought, which I was not impress, the dragonfly was so small, if the coin was 40 mm, it would be better, so does this butterfly, this should have been 50mm with that price.
