This 2019 two ounce $30 fine silver coin invites you to a special backyard gathering where several Canadian bird species have gathered around a nesting box. The mintage of just 3,000 pieces adds to its collectability. GST/HST exempt.
The colourful birds include a curious blue jay, a little downy woodpecker, a northern cardinal, and a perched purple martin. Selective colour highlights the birds and a few leaves of the catalpa tree. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
Bird watching is one of the easiest ways to observe Canada’s wildlife. By attracting birds to our outdoor spaces, we can learn more about our avian neighbours — from their colour variations or their different calls. This simple viewing activity can provide hours of enjoyment, and every visit is a treasured moment.
