The fourth coin in the ongoing series titled Colourful Songbirds of Canada

Thanks to its striking black and fiery orange colouring, the Baltimore oriole (Icterus galbula) is often spotted high in the trees during Canada’s summer months, from Alberta eastward through the southern portions of Eastern Canada. In celebration of both Canada’s natural beauty and its colourful songbird species, the Baltimore oriole is forever immortalised in this fine silver coin.

Special features:
•  The fourth coin in the ongoing series titled Colourful Songbirds of Canada, which showcases the beauty of some of Canada's most unique songbird species.
•  This finely detailed depiction of the Baltimore oriole offers a close view of the songbird's famous features.
•  The engraved oriole is further enhanced with the application of selective colouring, which recreates its vibrant colours in the wild.
•  A thoughtful gift for bird-watchers, art appreciators and anyone who admires the timeless beauty of the wildlife.
•  The Colourful Songbirds of Canada series is also offered as a 5-coin subscription! The coins will be launched monthly from March 2015 to July 2015.

About the design:
The reverse image by Canadian artist Hélène Girard offers a side profile view of a Baltimore oriole rendered with selective colouring. The songbird's solid-black colour carries from its head through to its wings where it mixes with bold white markings, then down to its orange-tipped tail. But it is the bird's blazing orange underparts that catch the viewer's eye, betraying its presence amid the engraved foliage of a wild plum tree.

Packaging:
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a custom clamshell with a black beauty box.

Coin was purchased because of a special interest in the bird. It was a well designed and well struck coin. Extremely pleasing to the eye.

had hoped they would have included the 'robin' as a song bird but the artwork is awesome and the Mint should create prints or posters of these designs
