Description Technical Specs Extended Information
 
The Hummingbird: The Canadian Forest’s Miniscule Miracle
Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo, the reverse of the coin depicts a Ruby-Throated Hummingbird in full flight: a pose that can only be captured by cutting-edge photographic equipment, given that its wings beat more than 50 times per second. Posed at the centre of this clean-lined, highly polished pure gold coin, the miniscule marvel raises its dark long-billed head, its wings—each feather engraved in fine detail—fully extended behind it. From the tiny white spot above the bird’s lifelike right eye to the downy feathering of its belly and dark-shaded tips of its back and tail-feathers, each detail of the hummingbird’s appearance is apparent despite the tiny size of both the coin and its subject.
