  • SELECTIVE COLOUR OVER DETAILED ENGRAVING: Recreates the pileated woodpecker's distinctive plumage, from its red crest to the black-and-white stripes that run down its neck.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo, your coin features an intricately engraved portrait of a pileated woodpecker in a forest setting. The side-profile view offers a sense of the bird's large size as it takes flight on broad wings, with feathers splayed in a dramatic fashion. Vibrant colour naturally draws the eye to the red crest atop its head, which offers a gorgeous splash of colour above the black and white stripes that run down its neck and re-appear along its flight feathers. Rising up in the engraved background is a mighty maple tree, where large chiselled holes in the bark provide evidence of the woodpecker's feeding activity before its majestic flight.

Packaging:

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

    This coin is 'Bird-Watching' in the palm of your hand. Great color and detail and close to a 3-d effect. A real gem of a coin ! So pleased, I ordered another. Besides, It's a great add to all the previous RCM bird series coins.

      As has been with the other coins in the series once again the mint has produced another great looking, detailed and colourful coin. The woodpecker pops right off the coin. Great series and was glad to have finished with such a beautiful coin.
