Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Since 1916, the Migratory Birds Convention represents an enduring partnership between Canada and the United States to protect our beloved migratory bird populations. This stunning four-coin series celebrates the centennial anniversary of this landmark conservation measure by showcasing some of the colourful bird species that are protected under its provisions, such as the mountain bluebird (Sialia currucoides).

This $20 coin is 99.99% pure silver, with a diameter of 38 millimetres and a nominal metal weight of 31.39 grams. The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a stunning side profile of a mountain bluebird in flight over an open meadow, where a nest box sits on a fencepost alongside a rocky stream. Finely detailed engraving gives this portrait a beautiful, life-like quality by recreating the songbird’s fine features, from its pointed black bill to the feathers of its tail and outstretched wings. Selective colour recreates the mountain bluebird’s most defining feature—its dazzling sky-blue plumage—and adds a vibrant, gem-like splash of colour against the engraved rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the background.

Packaged in a charming graphic beauty box, this coin adds a splash of nature’s bright colours to your nature, wildlife or bird-themed collection. As a gift, this valued collectible is sure to brighten up a nature enthusiast or bird lover’s day.
