Description

One of only two native swan species, Canada's tundra swan(Cygnus columbianus) is the very picture of elegance with its snowy white plumage and long, slender neck. This 2016 specimen set celebrates this large waterfowl, whose summertime presence along Northern Canada's coastline and on the tundra landscape only adds to the region's rich biodiversity.

The one-dollar coin in the 2016 specimen set of Canadian coins features a reverse image by Canadian artist Glen Scrimshaw. Beautifully depicted in its natural setting, the tundra swan is particularly resplendent with features that are brought to life through finely detailed engraving and the unique combination of finishes. As with all Canadian "loonies", this coin features an 11-sided shape and raised edging.

A welcome addition to a coin set collection, or as a gift to someone to start theirs.
