The 5-coin Colourful Songbirds of Canada series features five birds, each beautifully painted on fine silver. A perfect gift for someone who enjoys how the Royal Canadian Mint depicts birds on silver coins.
The second coin in this superb colourful series is the Magnolia Warbler. Other birds to feature are:
The Northern Cardinal
The Blue Jay
The Baltimore Oriole
The Violet-green Swallow
Second coin design:
Designed by Canadian artist Hélène Girard, your coin offers a side-profile image of the magnolia warbler. The warbler's distinctive colouring is faithfully recreated through the use of selective colour, which beautifully showcases the bird's black-streaked yellow underparts with its white-banded black tail and wing. Its sharp, black beak is open as the songbird releases a series of clear whistles from its perch in a plum tree, which fills the background on the left side of the design.
The use of selective colouring recreates the Magnolia Warbler's brilliant yellow & black plumage viewed in three-quarter profile, as the bird sits on the brachof a Plum tree.
Each coin in the series is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a custom beauty box & certicicate of authenticity.
