At a height of 1.5 metres, the photogenic whooping crane (Grus americana) is North America's tallest bird. It's also one of our rarest avian friends, and it has been the focus of intensive conservation efforts during the last half-century. The crane's unmistakable silhouette makes for a haunting cutout on your coin. Surrounded by its engraved nesting grounds, the missing element brings renewed attention to the plight of this majestic, endangered species.

Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, your coin transports you to the northern boreal plains—specifically the remote wetlands near the border of Alberta and the Northwest Territories. Detailed engraving and multiple finishes recreate the mighty forests that surround the whooping crane's natural nesting grounds, where it builds its nest in the low vegetation that lines the shallow water. Skillfully carved to ensure a smooth edge, the crane-shaped cut-out re-creates the large bird's unmistakable silhouette, which stands as a tribute to this great conservation icon. But the eye-catching element also delivers a powerful message; it's a re-imagining of the landscape without its long-endangered summer resident. The reverse includes the word "CANADA", the face value "30 DOLLARS" and the year "2017". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Packaging:

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