2010 Canadian 25-Cent Birds of Canada: Blue Jay Coloured Coin


Flight seems almost effortless for the Blue Jay (Cyanocitta cristata) as it glides through the air with surprising speed while barely flapping its wings. However, the jay’s quiet arrival is often announced by its harsh calls, which sometimes mimic other birds such as the Red-shouldered Hawk. The jay’s calls often alerts other birds to the presence of humans, cats or other possible predators.

Another surprise—its vivid blue colour is an illusion created by the unique inner structure of the jay’s feathers and they way they reflect light. Crush a Blue Jay feather and the blue tones disappear. This shimmering blue adorns the Jay’s crest, back, wings and tail, which are also accented in black and white. Unlike many bird species, there are no obvious differences in the plumage of males and females.

The Blue Jay is a very noisy bird that makes its home all over the province of Quebec.

 

Design

This larger-than-usual 25-cent coin in the Birds of Canada series showcases the Blue Jay and its signature, vivid blue that’s created by the unique structure of its feathers and how they reflect light.

 

Packaging

2010 Canadian 25-Cent Birds of Canada: Blue Jay Coloured Coin is encapsulated and presented in a maroon clamshell case lined with flock and protected by a black sleeve and Certificate of Authenticity.
