Your $1 coin features the Blue-winged Teal, a very small dabbling duck found in wetlands, prairie potholes, and shallow ponds across Canada from late spring to early fall. The second most common duck in North America at the turn of the century, the Blue-winged Teal is a long distance migrant that travels from its North American breeding grounds to overwintering sites as far south as South America. This long flight makes it one of the last duck species to arrive in Canada in spring and among the first to leave in autumn.
Your specimen set comes in an elegant genuine leather book-style packaging, with removable lens, that complements your beautiful coins.
