Did you know…

•   The Canada Goose's unique V-shaped flight pattern is believed to facilitate migration by enabling drafting for weaker flyers and aiding communication by the leader.
•   This amazing flyer has been known to travel more than 1,000 kilometres in a 24-hour period.
•   The species' relatively large vocabulary contains 13 distinct calls.
•   Canada geese are so verbose that they begin communicating with their parents while still in the egg, calling out trills of greeting, alarm, or pleasure to their waiting parents.
•   Canada geese mate for life, but will find a new partner if a mate dies.
•   Some conservationists consider the Canada goose's recovery from near-extinction a century ago a success model for wildlife management. The challenge for the species moving forward will be to manage its habitat overlap with humans and keep populations in balance.

Its dark head and bill, bright white cheek marking, long black neck, and densely feathered dun body are rendered in exceptional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers. Each feather, shadow, and highlight seem to burst with life as the iconic waterfowl looks calmly at the viewer.
