Description

This 2015 $10 pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint is the first coin issued in the colourful songbirds of Canada series.  The design features a rendition of the blue jay in a tranquil setting. As pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is GST/HST exempt.


The Design:

The vibrancy of the birds colour is captured using selective colour that highlights this beautiful songbird. The bird is shown in side profile, sitting nestled amidst leaves and flowers. The front is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2015”, and the face value of “10 DOLLARS.” 


The Blue Jay:

The blue jay measures 22–30 cm from bill to tail and weighs 70–100 g, with a wingspan of 34–43 cm.  This songbird has a pronounced crest on the head, which may be raised or lowered according to the bird's mood. When excited or aggressive, the crest will be fully raised. When frightened, the crest bristles outwards. When the bird is feeding among other jays or resting, the crest is flattened on the head.  The blue jay is easily recognized with its blue-hued plumage.  The underside is off-white and the neck is collared with black which extends to the sides of the head.  Its bill, legs, and eyes are all black.
