A small songbird with a bright-eyed expression, the tufted titmouse (Baeolophus bicolor) is often seen flitting about in the company of other foraging birds such as chickadees. Its repetitive whistle adds a cheerful sound to any day! Beautifully engraved in 99.99% pure silver, the titmice on the reverse are found perched in a yellow birch tree, whose colours convey the warmth and brightness of the summer season.

In wooded areas, the titmouse's repetitive whistle is often heard before the silvery bird itself is spotted. Once seen, its small bill only seems to exaggerate its small size. The titmouse typically spends much of its time foraging for insects; but if it happens upon a precious sunflower seed, a few strikes of its bill are all it takes to crack the shell open for a welcome feast!

An ideal gift for a bird lover and a fun addition to your existing coin display! Order today!


Special features:
THIRD IN THE SERIES! Your coin is the third in the five-coin series that showcases a beautifully engraved bird in its colourful Canadian habitat.
DIFFERENT FROM PREVIOUS BIRD-THEMED COINS! Gorgeous colour highlights the foreground and background, while the image of the bird allows the pure silver colour to shine through, creating a unique viewing experience as the bird almost appears to be silhouetted against the bright imagery around it.
INCLUDES SERIALIZED CERTIFICATE: The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins. Most of these are serialized certifications, meaning that each certificate is given a unique number, starting at 1.
99.99% PURE SILVER! Your coin is GST/HST exempt with a limited worldwide mintage.

Design:
Designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks, your coin features a pair of tufted titmice that are delicately perched on the branch stubs of a flourishing birch tree. Facing the opposite direction, one titmouse presents its side profile while the other has its head turned for a three-quarter view of its meticulously engraved features—from the pointed crest atop each bird's head to their expressive facial features. Selective colour highlights the bright summer tints of a yellow birch (Betula alleghaniensis), whose bronze bark complements the yellow-green leaves.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
