First coin design:
The first coin in your subscription was designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks and features a beautiful rendition of a northern cardinal in a tranquil setting. Finely detailed engraving showcases this songbird's distinctive features—from the pointed crest atop its head to its thick, short bill, as well as the soft feathers that lead to its tail. The use of selective colouring recreates the northern cardinal's brilliant red plumage viewed in three-quarter profile, as the bird sits nestled amidst engraved leaves and flower blossoms.

      Comments about 1/2 oz. Fine Silver Coloured 5-Coin Subscription - Colourful Songbirds of Canada (2015):

      In consideration of complaints about cards fitting into slots, EACH OF MINE FIT EASILY.

      About NAMES of beautiful birds: Methinks the wonderful thing about 'owning' a collectible is your right to personalize YOUR SET - so write the names from website onto a slip of paper and insert it into your set for quick and easy reference.

      BUT: I AM discouraged that the music box no longer plays music but instead plays 'scratchy confusion' (as with all 3 ballerina music boxes). I wish I knew how to disable it so to just appreciate the beauty of the case and coins. I am still a fan of RCM innovation and flexibility to try new things. Keep up the good work.

        As to be expected from the mint the coins are next to none. The presentation is of low quality for what is expected from the mint. We are so used to the high quality wood presentation boxes that cardboard is viewed as not desirable product.

            ALTHOUGH ALL 5 COINS ARE BEAUTIFUL THEY COULD BE BIGGER TO SHOW THEIR BEAUTY.

            THE MUSICAL BOX IS VERY CHEAPLY MADE. THE COINS WHEN PLACED IN EACH OF THE SLOTS DON'T FIT ie. TOO LOOSE. SURLEY, RCM COULD HAVE DONE A MUCH BETTER JOB IN GIVING A BOX THAT SHOWED WELL WITH PROPER FITTING COINS. TOTAL LACK OF QUALITY CONTROL.

                I bought these as a remembrance of my Dad's many bird feeders and all the different birds that visited him and we got to watch and enjoy when visiting. He took great care of the birds and they brought both my Dad and my Mom profound joy and were a blessing in their lives. These coins are truly gorgeous and I love the display box with the sounds of the birds.It was well designed and even a place for each coin's COA which fit perfectly. A keepsake and treasure to be passed on in the family for generations.

                Although these coins are beautiful, they fail to tell you what kind of a bird these are, so unless you're familiar with Canadian birds, you're still in the dark.

                    Looked forward to receiving the coins and the musical box at the end of the subscription. Disappointed when the box arrived and could not insert the COA into the slots in the box without bending the COA. Called the Mint and notified them, said they would call me back after checking, did not, I called again 3 wks later and they said they had others customers with the same problem and advised to cut the COA to make it fit. Poorly Handled and lack of Quality Contol on their part.
