Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Since 1916, the Migratory Birds Convention represents an enduring partnership between Canada and the United States to safeguard our beloved migratory bird populations. This four-coin series celebrates the centennial anniversary of this landmark conservation measure, by showcasing some of the colourful bird species protected under its provisions—including the acrobatic American goldfinch (Spinus tristis).

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a highly detailed engraved portrait of a male American goldfinch taking flight in rural Canada. In the engraved background, an ancestral farmhouse rises up from behind a hillock on the right, while a roughly textured split-rail fence stands between the old stone building and the aspen tree on the left. Beneath the partially cloudy sky, the handsome American goldfinch lifts off from its perch on the fence post. The application of rich colour over engraving captures the exquisiteness of its brightly coloured plumage—particularly the striking contrast between its cheerful yellow feathers with white markings and the black of its forehead, outstretched wings and tail.

Selective colour over detailed engraving recreates the unmistakable yellow, white and black plumage of the male American goldfinch. As a gift, this valued collectible is sure to brighten up a nature enthusiast or bird lover’s day.
