A favourite among bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts! Order today!

With canary-like colours that embody the bright days of summer, it's easy to see why the American goldfinch is a favourite among bird-watchers and nature enthusiasts. Active and sociable, this bird certainly doesn't seem to be shy; even in flight, the flash of yellow and black colours bouncing through the air catches the observer's eye, while the goldfinch's flight call of perchicoree-perchicoree draws further attention.

A gorgeous addition to your bird coin collection! Order today!

Special features:
  • Third coin in an outstanding series commemorating the 100th anniversary of the Migratory Birds Convention through some of the colourful bird species protected under its provisions.
  • SELECTIVE COLOUR OVER DETAILED ENGRAVING: Recreates the American goldfinch's elegant appearance and beautiful plumage.
  • 99.99% PURE SILVER! This coin is crafted in 99.99% pure silver with mintage set to 6,500 coins worldwide.
  • GRAPHIC BEAUTY BOX! Packaged in a charming graphic beauty box, your coin adds a splash of nature's bright colours to your collection.
  • Your coin is GST/HST exempt!

About the Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features a highly detailed engraved portrait of a male American goldfinch taking flight in rural Canada. In the engraved background, an ancestral farmhouse rises up from behind a hillock on the right, while a roughly textured split-rail fence stands between the old stone building and the aspen tree on the left. Beneath the partially cloudy sky, the handsome American goldfinch lifts off from its perch on the fence post. The application of rich colour over engraving captures the exquisiteness of its brightly coloured plumage—particularly the striking contrast between its cheerful yellow feathers with white markings and the black of its forehead, outstretched wings and tail.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a graphic beauty box.

    I bought this coin at the post office, it looks really nice in the showcase, came home and put it in my collection, read the review, then come to find out the bird is handycap, I was dissappointed, I wanted to return it, but I will give it away and buy me a proper bird. WHAT DO YOU HAVE TO SAY RCM??

        This coin is so much better in person. Like the other coins in this series, the colouring of the birds is so bright and vivid, the bird almost appears to be real. The detail in the background adds an even better presentation. Look forward to receiving the last coin in this series.

          Coin back ground looks great. But the way the bird is done does not do justice to the coin.
