Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
Flittering from branch to branch, the black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) is an enchanting sight at backyard feeders and in woodlands across much of Canada. This friendly and inquisitive little songbird is one of our beloved year-round companions; it is one of the many species of birds that breed in Canada, where their interactions with the environment leaves us with a greater appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us—as beautifully showcased in this unique five-coin series. When you purchase the encapsulated coin as part of the subscription, you will receive a custom paperboard box that is as colourful as the coin’s reverse. Lift the lid to uncover a delightful surprise: it doubles as a music box—complete with a musical element that recreates the bird’s enchanting song!

The reverse image by Canadian artist Jean-Charles Daumas deftly combines sumptuous colours and intricate engraving that leaves one with an appreciation for nature’s beauty. The selective application of colour recreates the soft pink and white hues of the magnolia (Magnoliaceae) blossoms, which evoke a warm, sunny day in May. One can imagine the musical call of the blackcapped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) filling the air as it sits perched on the branch; engraved in outstanding detail, the diminutive chickadee presents its right-side profile to allow the viewer to study its body shape and narrow tail.

A beautifully artistic and meaningful gift for bird-watchers, nature lovers and art appreciators alike.
