Mother Nature is a veritable artist, transforming the Canadian landscape with a seemingly endless array of colours that change with the seasons. Flowering plants, grasses, shrubs and trees inspire and captivate us with their natural and often vibrant beauty. More importantly, plants are the source of life on our planet and a fundamental part of Canada's rich biodiversity. They provide a habitat for some of Canada's most endearing bird species, whose interactions with their environment leave us with greater appreciation for the beauty that surrounds us.

A gorgeous and fun gift for a bird and music lover! Order today!

About the first coin design – chickadee:

Designed by Canadian artist Jean-Charles Daumas, your first coin in your subscription the chickadee deftly combines sumptuous colours and intricate engraving that leaves one with an appreciation for nature's beauty. The selective application of colour recreates the soft pink and white hues of the magnolia (Magnoliaceae) blossoms, which evoke a warm, sunny day in May. One can imagine the musical call of the black-capped chickadee (Poecile atricapillus) filling the air as it sits perched on the branch; engraved in outstanding detail, the diminutive chickadee presents its right-side profile to allow the viewer to study its body shape and narrow tail.

Packaging:

You will receive a unique music box to store your five coins, shipped to you with the first coin of this 5-coin subscription. Lift the lid to uncover a delightful surprise: it doubles as a music box—complete with a musical element that recreates a bird song!

      Comments about 1/2 oz. Pure Silver Coloured 5-Coin Subscription - Birds Among Nature’s Colours (2017):

      I thought that this coin and all coins from the series might be flop because the birds are not colourized however, after receiving my first coin I am severely mistaken. Not only does the bird stick out from the background "Colours of Nature" but also presents well when the light catches the face of the coin. Looking forward to others in the series.

          I subscribed to this set for my daughter's birthday. The coin is nice and colourful and is of excellent quality. Other comments complain that the bird is grayed out, but this series is "Birds Among Nature's Colours". They are not about the birds but the colours in natyre

            I really think that the focal point of the coin should be the bird but it is basically "greyed out".
