Description

This delicately-coloured, 25-cent coin features the Pintail duck, whose Latin name (Anas Acuta) literally translates to "sharp duck", which alludes to the pin-like point of the male's tail. This item is one of the latest in a line of popular collectable bird coins released by the Royal Canadian Mint. With a specimen finish, the reverse of this coin depicts two Pintails (which can be found across Canada, from the Arctic to the Prairies), floating serenely on the surface of a lily-pad covered pond. The long tail of the male duck and the greenery in the scene stretch past the circular inner frame of the coin, and the well-placed bursts of colour emphasize the differences in plumage between the female and male. The artistry of this coin confirms the Royal Canadian Mint's reputation for excellence in craftsmanship, making this a fantastic addition to any collection of bird or nature-themed coins.
