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.
