Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Since 1916, the Migratory Birds Convention has represented an enduring partnership between Canada and the United States to safeguard our beloved migratory bird populations. This stunning four-coin series commemorates the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Birds Convention, with a colourful showcase of some of the species protected under its provisions—including the American avocet (Recurvirostra americana).

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a beautiful engraved portrait of an American avocet on its approach to a shallow marsh. Against the rolling foothills and the row of cottonwoods in the background, the avocet prepares to land amid the grasses that sway in the tranquil breeze. One of the shorebird’s long legs skims the surface of the water to slow its descent, creating a soft wake in this otherwise tranquil setting. The application of rich colour over the detailed engraving recreates the avocet’s defining characteristics: its dark, upturned bill; its cinnamon-coloured neck; the contrasting black-and-white colours of its back and wings; and the blue-grey legs that allow it to wade gracefully through shallow waters.

As a gift, this valued collectible is sure to brighten up a nature enthusiast or bird lover’s day.
