Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The fourth coin in the ongoing series titled Colourful Songbirds of Canada, which showcases the beauty of some of Canada’s most unique songbird species. Thanks to its striking black and fiery orange colouring, the Baltimore Oriole (Icterus galbula) is often spotted high in the trees during Canada’s summer months, from Alberta eastward through the southern portions of Eastern Canada. In celebration of both Canada’s natural beauty and its colourful songbird species, the Baltimore Oriole is forever immortalised in this fine silver coin.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Hélène Girard offers a side profile view of a Baltimore Oriole rendered with selective colouring. The songbird’s solid-black colour carries from its head through to its wings where it mixes with bold white markings, then down to its orange-tipped tail. But it is the bird’s blazing orange underparts that catch the viewer’s eye, betraying its presence amid the engraved foliage of a wild plum tree.

A thoughtful gift for bird-watchers, art appreciators and anyone who admires the timeless beauty of the wildlife.
