The latest issue in the Royal Canadian Mint's popular Ducks of Canada series features North America's largest diving duck: the Canvasback.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Glen C. Scrimshaw features a coloured and engraved male and female Canvasback in their natural habitat. Standing at the right front side of the image, the male is presented in profile from its left. The stance highlights the drake's characteristically sloped bill, graceful neck, and distinctive colouring. The male stands on a floating nest filled with eight small eggs. The female paddles in the water on the left side of the image, slightly behind the male. Her pose showcases the swimming posture of the Canvasback as well as the female's mottled brown colouring. The background presents a beautifully coloured sunrise scene on a misty tree-lined lake.

A limited mintage of 10,000 and highly popular subject matter for bird watchers, duck hunters and coloured coin admirers means that this coin is sure to be sought after by collectors.
