Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
This delicately-coloured, half ounce fine silver 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 the latest in a line of popular collectable bird coins released by the Royal Canadian Mint. Presented in a proof finish, the reverse of this coin depicts two migrating Pintails (which can be found across Canada, from the Arctic to the Prairies), standing near the water's edge as tufts of early spring grass sprout in a wetland setting; likely, they are surveying their potential home for the breeding season. The long tail of the male duck stretches 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.
