__Damselfly 2011


After all the issues with the Dragonfly 2008, I wanted to do a Damselfly in the same theme... except to deliver the coins to the customers. :) Therefore the coin has cutout wings with translucent enamel. Jackalgirl and myself added our own flare to these. I hope you enjoy!

Damselflies (suborder Zygoptera) are insects in the order Odonata. Damselflies are similar to dragonflies, but the adults can be differentiated by the fact that the wings of most damselflies are held along, and parallel to, the body when at rest. Furthermore, the hindwing of the damselfly is essentially similar to the forewing, while the hindwing of the dragonfly broadens near the base, caudal to the connecting point at the body. Damselflies are also usually smaller, weaker fliers than dragonflies, and their eyes are separated.

This coin can definitely be a collector's item or can be a unique gift idea for someone you know!
