                • Q:

                  Do the wings actually physically protrude from the coin, or do they give the illusion of protrusion?

                    A:

                    The wings physically protrude off the coin. They are a separate element that is affixed to the coin to elevate the three dimensional aspect of the bird.

                    The previous coins were the Crimson Rosella (2014) and the Rainbow Lorikeet (2015). Images of both can be found by searching "parrot" on Mint.ca

                    A:

                    It's possible you're seeing the seam between the three dimensional wing application and the portion of the parrot that is flat on the coin. The wings sit above the coin flat, so there is a slight raise between the two.

                    Hi Sunshine,

                    This product is produced by the Cook Islands and they did not provide a video for this coin. We do not typically get additional photos or videos done for coins we're reselling.
