This 2017 $10 pure silver coin features selective colouring to recreate the colours of the Northern FlickerÕs habitat, with finely detailed classic engraving that enhances all of the fine details. The front of the coin is engraved with the face value of Ò10 DOLLARS.Ó As a pure silver coin struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Jean-Charles Daumas captures the delicate beauty of springtime in CanadaÕs many forests. Returning to its breeding range after wintering in the south, the northern flicker is positioned vertically on a tree limb to allow a full view of its distinctively patterned plumage. Intricate engraving captures its likeness in outstanding detail, from the relatively long bill to the darker markings on its tail and upper wing feathers. Towards the base of the tree, selective colour adds a bright splash of colour to the woodland scene. Red, green, yellow and white paint beautifully recreate the three-leaf clusters of red trillium and white trillium, which carpet the forest floor each April and May.
