Now on offer from the Royal Canadian Mint is a stunning new series of silver coins paying tribute to the beautiful, colourful songbirds of Canada! These coins are offered in a subscription, meaning you can place your order once and be at ease knowing that each coin in the series will be delivered right to your doorstep as they are released.
Each bird is beautifully painted onto 99.99% fine silver. The first coin in this series has been designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks, featuring a gorgeous portrait of a Northern Cardinal in a tranquil setting. The finely detailed engraving showcases this songbird’s distinctive features, such as the pointed crest atop its thick, short bill, and the soft feathers that lead to its tail. The use of selective colouring recreates the brilliant red plumage of the bird, which is viewed in three-quarter profile, as it sits nestled amidst engraved leaves and flower blossoms.
In this series, you can also look forward to striking depictions of the Magnolia Warbler, the Blue Jay, the Baltimore Oriole, and the Violet-Green Swallow. This subscription is made all the more enticing with a FREE MUSIC BOX to store the five coins! Shipped with the fifth and final coin, this music box will play the delicate sounds of the harmonious songbirds when you open it.
Each coin is struck in a half-ounce (15.87 grams) of 99.99% pure silver, with a broad diameter of 34mm and a face value of $10. Bound to be a perfect gift for nature enthusiasts and coin collectors alike, this series is sure to sell out fast, so don’t miss this opportunity to subscribe! As pure silver coins struck by the Royal Canadian Mint, this series is GST/HST-exempt.
