Designed by Canadian artist Jean-Charles Daumas, your coin presents an image of a Canada goose in its natural habitat, its wings outstretched in a stance expressing dominance or warning. Viewed from the back with its beautiful wings rendered in fine detail, the goose looks out across marshy waters, its long neck and graceful black head held high. It stands on its legs with its black-tipped white tail raised above the water. Marsh reeds dot the water on both sides of the goose and poke from the water's surface in the background.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box & certicicate of authenticity.
