2014 $3 commemorative coin. It is 27 mm in diameter and weighs 7.96 grams. They are minted to the standard of 99.99% purity!! The reverse has an attractive image of this fabulous insect.

This stunning coin is the third in the Royal Canadian Mint’s popular series that depicts the architects of Canada’s natural world—including the Monarch caterpillar, which encases itself in a chrysalis before emerging as a beautiful butterfly.

This $3 coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 27 millimetres and a metal weight of 7.96 grams. The reverse image, by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, features a beautifully detailed side profile of a Monarch caterpillar. Selective colour application showcases the caterpillar’s bright yellow, black and white stripes as it crawls along a bright green milkweed leaf—a plant that plays an integral part in the Monarch’s early life cycles. A large chrysalis is engraved in the background as a reminder of the Monarch’s next stage, at which time it will enclose itself during its metamorphosis into one of Canada’s most recognizable butterflies. Above the image, the face value of '3 DOLLARS' is engraved, along with the date '2014' to the right side, and the word 'CANADA' below. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
