Wildlife conservation may seem a modern ideal, but a century ago, Canada and the United States were already working together to protect their shared migratory bird populations.

The Migratory Birds Convention signed in 1916 stands as a groundbreaking milestone in the history of wildlife conservation. It's enforced by Canada's Migratory Birds Convention Act (MBCA, 1917) and America's Migratory Birds Treaty Act (MBCA, 1918) both of which protect species, nests and eggs from unregulated hunting or commercial activities

Today, the Migratory Birds Convention remains a keystone of wildlife management in North America. As it marks its 100th year, this stunning coin series celebrates four of the migratory species that have undoubtedly benefited from its mission with exquisite designs that feature each bird in its natural habitat.

Sure to brighten up a nature enthusiast or bird lover's collection! Subscribe today!

About the first coin design: The mountain bluebird:

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a stunning side profile of a mountain bluebird in flight over an open meadow, where a nest box sits on a fencepost alongside a rocky stream. Finely detailed engraving gives this portrait a beautiful, life-like quality by recreating the songbird's fine features, from its pointed black bill to the feathers of its tail and outstretched wings. Selective colour recreates the mountain bluebird's most defining feature—its dazzling sky-blue plumage—and adds a vibrant, gem-like splash of colour against the engraved rolling foothills of the Rocky Mountains in the background.

    Comments about 1 oz. Fine Silver Coloured 4-Coin Subscription – Colourful Birds of Canada (2016):

    This coin is simply flawless. The bird seems to pop right off the coin. The blue really contrasts nice with the silver coin. Look forward to receiving the others in the series.

    • Q:

      Why can't this 4 coin subscription come in a box for all instead of individual boxes

        A:

        Unfortunately not all of our subscription sets come with a collector box to display your coins (this helps to keep the cost lower on sets like this one). You can purchase a selection of display cases on our website.

        Thank you for your question. For this subscription, each coin comes in its own individual box, and there is no one box in which to display all the coins.

    • Q:

      I have two questions actually. Firstly, why can this coin not be purchased separately as is the case with many other coins offered also as part of a series or collection? Secondly, if the coin has to be part of a subscription, why does the Mint not at a minimum show the designs for the other coins? Even if the striking has not been done yet, it must be possible to show the artwork upon which the coin will be produced. It would be nice to see what the other coins will look like.The Mint is asking customers to take a leap of faith that the other coins will also appeal to the purchaser and past experience is that this is not always the case. I am very hesitant to subscribe to something when I don't know what exactly I will be paying for.
