Description

Whether it’s bouncing around in flight, singing its lively song or climbing seed-bearing plants, the American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) can’t help but draw attention to itself as it brings a brilliant flash of colour to any setting. On this coin’s reverse, it’s easy to see why this handsome finch is a favourite of many birdwatchers, its yellow-and-black plumage contrasting beautifully with the cheerful purple hues of aster flowers.

The Design:
The coin’s selectively coloured reverse features a cheery late-summer scene set in the countryside and designed by Canadian artist Tony Bianco. A barn appears behind the wood fence and a gate opens up to a dirt road in the engraved background. Easily detected by its black cap and yellow plumage, a male American Goldfinch (Spinus tristis) is perched on a cluster of purple-coloured aster flowers that rise up in the foreground. The obverse features the effigy of His Majesty King Charles III by Canadian artist Steven Rosati.
