2014 $10 .9999 Silver Coin with Hologram: Dragonfly Series - Green Darner

Features
    The reverse image by Canadian artist Celia Godkin features a painted Anax junius set against a three-dimensional hologram. Rendered in finest detail, the dragonfly is presented from its right side. Its delicately veined transparent wings are fully extended as the green darner flies sprightly across a vegetation-lined pond. This presentation of the darner shows the viewer the large dragonfly’s vast wingspan, beautiful emerald-green thorax, large green eyes, and characteristic head-top bulls-eye marking as well as its long blue “darning needle” abdomen. Its preferred summer breeding habitat is uniquely depicted in the hologram background; by capturing colour from light, this holographic image offers added dimensionality and movement to the reverse image. Tall vegetation lines the water’s edge in the top portion of the background while below, nearby trees are reflected on the pond’s mirror-like surface. In the centre, lily pads float on the shimmering water’s surface – a welcome respite for the dragonfly on a warm summer day. By holding the hologram at a 45 degree angle under the light, the dragonfly’s habitat comes to life in dimensional detail – from the vegetation along the water’s edge to the lily pads floating on the water’s shimmering, reflective surface.
