Just like in previous years, this series, which is sold out annually, presents itself with a new country of issue. This awesome silver coin presented by Tanzania showcases one of nature’s wonders – the Cymothoe hobarti butterfly, indigenous to the tropical forests of Tanzania and neighbouring countries such as Uganda, Kenya and Congo.

The obverse shows the coat of arms of Tanzania as well as the inscriptions of the face value of the coin and the issuing country.

When you turn the coin around, the reverse side fascinates you at first sight! The designers chose to depict the butterfly in full color, and 3D, which is a perfect decision to let collectors enjoy the perfection of this delicate creature. The Cymothoe hobarti butterfly was placed here using the special 3D technology, so its wings rise above the surface of the coin as if it was about to flutter away. The flower in the background enhances the insect's finesse, so the overall impression made by the reverse is better than great. The image comes with the legends that denote the issuing year, the names of the series and the species. Struck from silver 25 g silver .999 in proof quality, the coin comes in a stylized wooden box. The mintage is limited to 2 500 pieces.
