Why add this Canadian 2017 Monarch Migration Colorized Silver GEM Proof to your collection?

The Royal Canadian Mint's (RCM) Monarch Migration proof celebrates the astounding annual expedition of the butterfly species to ensure their survival. Thousands of Monarch Butterflies make the two thousand mile journey each year from the cold regions of North America to the warmer climates of Mexico and California to hibernate amongst tree branches and trunks. This gorgeous 2017 selectively colorized proof, with a limited mintage of just 3,500, measures an impressive 55mm in diameter, struck from 3 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver.

Breathtaking colorized Monarch imagery

Illustrated on the reverse is a Monarch butterfly hovering between the stalks, leaves and blossoms of a milkweed plant. The butterfly is magnificently color enhanced with the distinctive colors of its species: vibrant shades of orange with black and white details. Inscribed "CANADA" below, along with the initials "GS," crediting Canadian artist Graham Spaull for the design.

Canadian artist Susanna Blunt's sculpted profile image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, surrounded by a maple leaf patterned field and the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "2017," "D. G. REGINA" and "50 DOLLARS."
