Few animals portray the fleeting nature and fragility of life like the Death’s Head Hawkmoth. The graceful flyer with the iconic death’s head pattern on its back is portrayed on a brand new coin concept that contrasts various aspects.

The fragility of the moth symbolizes life while its pattern shows death, the novel shape of the coin bridges the gap between traditional rounds and modern shaped coins and the geometric design contrasts with the organic beauty of the moth.

This new issue features a brand new polishing technique called lapping that creates a flat, reflective surface on the wings with a brushed look that starkly contrasts with the black proof field.
