Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
From colourful flora to iconic fauna and landmarks, the breathtaking photographs of Canadian Geographic reflect the rich diversity of the Canadian experience. In the continuing Celebrating Canada’s 150th series, this fine silver coin highlights the rivers of New Brunswick as a defining feature throughout the Maritime province, where the waterways provide a key habitat for countless species. FOURTH in an exciting 13-coin series: As Canada celebrates its 150th anniversary, embark on a cross-country collecting experience with a stunning series that showcases Canada’s iconic flora, fauna, landscapes and landmarks!

Based on a photograph captured by Canadian photographer Claude Belanger, the reverse captures an idyllic scene along the water’s edge in New Brunswick. The application of colour over the detailed engraving recreates the life-like qualities of the original photograph, in which a great blue heron (Ardea herodias) stands in the shallow water. Partially shielded by the dried grass and reeds
that line the riverbank, the side-profile view showcases the long-legged bird’s pointed beak, its striking blue-grey plumage, and the longer feathers on its head, wings and chest.

An affordable way to introduce others to the joy of coin collecting while fostering a widespread appreciation for the incomparable beauty of Canada’s landscapes
