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. To celebrate the 100th anniversary of this landmark conservation measure, this four-coin series showcases some of the bird species protected under its provisions—including the pileated woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus). A visual celebration of a key conservation milestone and the enduring partnership between Canada and the United States that has resulted in crucial conservation measures in both countries.

The reverse design by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features an intricately engraved portrait of a pileated woodpecker in a forest setting. The side-profile view offers a sense of the bird’s large size as it takes flight on broad wings, with feathers splayed in a dramatic fashion. Vibrant colour naturally draws the eye to the red crest atop its head, which offers a gorgeous splash of colour above the black and white stripes that run down its neck and re-appear along its flight feathers. Rising up in the engraved background is a mighty maple tree, where large chiselled holes in the bark provide evidence of the woodpecker’s feeding activity before its majestic flight.

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