We strikingly demonstrate the possibilities of laser surface refinement on our newest release – the Shades of Nature Butterfly. The coin obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II.
The Blue Nawab or Polyura schreiber is a butterfly which is mainly found in Singapore but also in other tropical areas in Asia. The colourful insect stands out with its eye catching pattern and a wingspan of up to 115 mm.
The green caterpillars are particularly remarkable. They weave a silk resting place on a few leaves of the plant they inhabit. This is where they rest during the day, in order to recover from their nightly feasting tours.
