Description

Theme

With its blue feathers and distinguished air, the blue jay stands out wherever it goes—and it certainly does on this coin. The engraved design pairs the lively songbird with another Canadian treasure, the maple leaf, and adds selective colour to show the two at their colourful best.

Design:
The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features an elevated view of an engraved park setting, where a stone path leads to a footbridge. In the foreground, the blue, black and white feathers of the blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata) make it easy to spy the colourful songbird perched among the red and gold sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Special features:
  • A BLUE JAY PORTRAIT! One of Canada’s most colourful birds, the blue jay is front and centre in this gorgeous bird portrait.
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR! Selective colour highlights the blue jay and the surrounding maple leaves, and transforms the design into a celebration of Mother Nature’s contrasting colours.
  • THE DESIGN PULLS YOU INTO THE SCENE! The eye-level view creates the impression that the viewer is standing right behind the blue jay.
  • FOR NATURE LOVERS! Magnificently crafted in 99.99% pure silver, this eye-catching piece is the perfect addition to your Canadiana-, nature- or bird-themed collection.
