I looked for ages for a dragonfly coin before finding this one. Unfortunately, it turns out this coin is really hard to find. It was issued as part of a set for children, to interest them in coin collecting. The series featured backyard insects, and all of them except this one were. .. insects. You know what I mean, kinda creepy crawly things little boys might like.
Regardless of the rest of the set, this coin is very pretty, especially with some color and shine added. It was fun to paint, and if I am lucky I might find another one some day.
The first one I painted a couple of years ago and emailed a picture of it to my sister Ginny to show off. She bought it before the rest of the world got to see it. Her colors, etc. Actually nice it stayed in the family if it is going to be so hard to find these.
So I just put this one on my online store and it will be fun to watch and see if anyone snaps it up, or whether it will be around for me to look at and enjoy for a while.
