A northern map turtle lingers near the shore, providing the perfect shape for the butterfly's body and eye.

              Loved the concept of reflected butterfly but in hand the reflected side was just a muddied mess.Top butterfly portion well done ,very colourful and detailed and nice gloss.Whole butterfly should have been like the top.Returned 4 coins I bought.

                      A:

                      The process is proprietary to the Mint and can't be disclosed for commercial reasons. The colour is durable and will last under normal conditions. However, no coin can resist damage by tools or other abusive actions that are intended to damage to the coin.
