First coin design:
The fourth coin in this series - The Baltimore Oriole was designed by Canadian artist Hélène Girard offers a side profile view of a Baltimore oriole rendered with selective colouring. The songbird's solid-black colour carries from its head through to its wings where it mixes with bold white markings, then down to its orange-tipped tail. But it is the bird's blazing orange underparts that catch the viewer's eye, betraying its presence amid the engraved foliage of a wild 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.
