Design: The coins design showcases a painted Twelve-Spotted Skimmer dragonfly set against a hologram. The dragonfly is presented from its right side. Its lacy, brightly hued periwinkle-spotted wings, with contrasting black dots and soft blue-white colouring, are fully extended as the male Twelve-Spotted Skimmer poses delicately atop a blade of pond grass. From the viewer's vantage point, we see the Skimmer's characteristic yellow-lined thorax and body as well as the soft blue colouring that distinguishes the mature male of the species. In the background, its natural habitat—a water lily-lined pond—is presented in a shimmering full colour hologram, bringing sparkling movement to the water. The polished silver border around the image is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013” and the face value of “10 DOLLARS.” The coin was designed by Canadian artist Celia Godkin.

Packging: The coin comes encapsulated and presented in a maroon flock-lined clamshell case. It is protected by a black sleeve and accompanied by a serialized certificate of authenticity.
