Description

This beautiful and popular full colour  2014 coin is part of a Canadian Ducks series, and features a pair of Harlequin ducks standing on rocks in a stream. With a limited mintage of just 17,500 coins and a modest issue price of $29.95, the Harlequin Duck is a quality collector coin at an easy purchase giftable price.    

 

The Design:

The brightly coloured drake is seen in the center with his mate in the background. The coin is also engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2014” and the face value of “25 CENTS.”   Mintage is limited to just 17,500 coins. Although the nominal face value is 25 cents, this is very different from a circulation issue coin.  This collector issue features a large 35 mm diameter, and is produced advanced striking and coin painting processes.  


Harlequin Duck:

The Harlequin Duck is a small, relatively uncommon sea duck. They are named for the clown-like appearance of the males. Slate-blue, males are highlighted in black-outlined white striping and accented by brown on the lower body and brownish black at the wing-tips. Females are well-camouflaged in basic brown. At an average weight of less than 700 g for males and less than 600 g for females, the species is roughly half the size of an average Mallard.
