I have all five coins in this series and really love the Venetian glass critters that give these coins such character. I think this one is my favourite. If the mint continues this series, I will continue to buy them! Thank you.

Did the mint produce a twenty five cent version of this coin like they have in the past for this flora and fauna series? I have been watching and waiting but seen nothing . Thank you June Howell

long time collector

Thank you for your question. A twenty-five cent version that accompanies and mimics to a certain degree the Venetian glass coin was not produced.
