Description

This beautiful 2014 pure silver $10 coloured coin is double struck with a proof finish, the highest quality produced by the Royal Canadian Mint. Mintage is limited to10,000 coins.  GST / HST exempt.

 

The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant and features a pair of pintail ducks returning to their Canadian wetland habitat. The drake stands on the ice near the water’s edge with his mate behind.


The Pintail Drake:

The pintail drake has a chocolate-brown head, a blue-grey bill and a white neck with combinations of black, grey and white along the back, and a blackish-green patch called the "speculum" shimmering from grey wings.  In contrast, the female's colouring is far more muted to provide critical camouflage while nesting, but her bronze speculum and mottled brown feathers have an understated elegance all their own.  The coin is struck in one half ounce of fine silver.
