The reverse image is mostly gilt, with the exceptions being a hummingbird and a flower on which it is feeding. Several other flowers, which are gilt, are also included in the design. The inscription "SHADES OF NATURE '17" is included at the top, complete with a mirror effect of the words "SHADES" and "NATURE."

Nearly perfect Proof 69 Ultra Cameo Early Releases

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in Ultra Cameo condition, which means that its heavily frosted devices contrast sharply with its deeply mirrored fields. NGC also graded the coin Proof 69, which means that it has at least one minuscule imperfection, but no imperfections that can be seen without magnification.
