2016 Canadian $20 Migratory Birds Convention 100 Years of Protection: The American Goldfinch 1 oz Fine Silver Coloured Coin


With canary-like colours that embody the bright days of summer, it's easy to see why the American goldfinch is a favourite among bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts. Active and sociable, this bird certainly doesn't seem to be shy; even in flight, the flash of yellow and black colours bouncing through the air catches the observer's eye, while the goldfinch's flight call of perchicoree-perchicoree draws further attention.

A gorgeous addition to your bird coin collection!

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a highly detailed engraved portrait of a male American goldfinch taking flight in rural Canada. In the engraved background, an ancestral farmhouse rises up from behind a hillock on the right, while a roughly textured split-rail fence stands between the old stone building and the aspen tree on the left. Beneath the partially cloudy sky, the handsome American goldfinch lifts off from its perch on the fence post. The application of rich colour over engraving captures the exquisiteness of its brightly coloured plumage—particularly the striking contrast between its cheerful yellow feathers with white markings and the black of its forehead, outstretched wings and tail.
