2019 Canadian $30 Birds in the Backyard - 2 oz Fine Silver Coloured Coin


A backyard feeder or birdhouse is our way of putting out the welcome mat for our winged friends! Bird watching is one of the easiest ways to observe Canada’s wildlife. By attracting birds to our outdoor spaces, we can learn more about our avian neighbours—from their colour variations or their different calls. This simple viewing activity can provide hours of enjoyment, and every visit is a treasured moment. This 2 oz. pure silver coin invites you to a special backyard gathering. While our popular bird-themed coins often highlight one species at a time, this engraved piece brings together several different birds in one image. Selective colour highlights a few leaves of the catalpa tree. But all eyes are on the true stars of this design: the blue jay, the downy woodpecker, the northern cardinal and the purple martin—four of Canada’s famously colourful birds.

A beautiful 2 oz. pure silver coin featuring your favourite birds at a birdfeeder! Order today!

Design

Designed by artist Neil Hamelin, the selectively coloured reverse features an engraved birdhouse in a catalpa tree (Catalpa speciosa). Several colourful Canadian bird species have gathered around this nesting box (from left to right): a curious blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata), a little downy woodpecker (Dryobates pubescens), a northern cardinal (Cardinalis cardinalis)landing, and a perched purple martin (Progne subis). The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Packaging

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