Details

Long has the Blowfly (Calliphoridae) been the scourge of many an Australian ba ckyard barbeque but, when observed up close, this misunderstood creature can be seen as a marvel of design and colour. The Blowfly’s prize feature is a shiny metallic coloured exoskeleton which gives off a blue, green and black sheen whilst flying. One of the first coins in the Royal Australian Mint’s Bright Bugs six coin series will help give a new appreciation to the insect we all know so well. The coins feature traditional sculpture as well as colour printing, and are presented in a coin-in-card format
