The brilliant orange and black butterfly is especially famous for its annual migration all the way from Canada to Mexico when it’s estimated to travel up to 425 kilometres a day – an amazing feat for such a fragile creature. Every year upwards of 300 million make the lengthy journey.
What’s truly astonishing, though, is how the butterflies know their precise destination, having never made the journey before!
During 2012, the latest Young Collectors series celebrates this and six other remarkable creatures.
An Australian legal tender gift program designed for parents and grandparent to give to their children, the series is a great way to introduce youngsters to the hobby of coin collecting.
