Long has the Blowfly (Calliphoridae) been the scourge of many an Australian backyard 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.
Presented in an attractive colour coin card.
