2014 $10 FINE SILVER COIN PINTAIL
The spring thaw is underway yet a dusting of snow can be seen around the grassy vegetation in the background. In the foreground, the drake stands on ice near the water’s edge, its long tail feathers stretching past the coin’s raised circular frame. The mottled brown female strikes a colourful contrast next to her mate as they survey their home for the breeding season.
- This striking ½ ounce silver 10-dollar coin, featuring a pair of migrating pintails as they return to their Canadian wetland habitat, is the latest addition to the Royal Canadian Mint’s highly successful, sold-out series of collectible bird coins.
- The design is a celebration of a beloved species that can be found from the Canadian Arctic to the prairies, and the early spring setting captures a moment typically seen during Canada’s seasonal cycles.
- The colouring and details exemplify the Royal Canadian Mint’s internationally renowned artistry and craftsmanship.
- An excellent unique and detailed collectible for bird aficionados, nature lovers and conservationists.
The coloured reverse image by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant depicts a pair of northern pintails which have made the arduous journey home to their Canadian habitat.
