2019 Canada 2 oz Silver $30 Birds in the Backyard

SKU 17421
This 2 oz fine Silver coin invites you to a special backyard gathering. While the popular bird-themed coins often highlight one species at a time, this engraved piece brings together several different birds in one image.

A backyard feeder or birdhouse is our way of putting out the welcome mat for our winged friends! Bird watching is one of the easiest ways to observe Canada’s wildlife. By attracting birds to our outdoor spaces, we can learn more about our avian neighbors — from their color variations or their different calls. This simple viewing activity can provide hours of enjoyment, and every visit is a treasured moment.
Coin Highlights:
  • Contains 2 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
  • Comes packaged in a maroon clamshell beauty box from the mint.
  • Limited mintage of 3,000 coins.
  • Obverse: Right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the year and face value.
  • Reverse: Designed by artist Neil Hamelin, the selectively colored reverse features an engraved birdhouse in a catalpa tree. Several colorful Canadian bird species have gathered around this nesting box (from left to right): a curious blue jay, a little downy woodpecker, a northern cardinal landing, and a perched purple martin.
  • Guaranteed by the Royal Canadian Mint.

Designs such as this one enable us to step away from the stress of everyday life and truly enjoy the beauty that Mother Nature has bestowed upon us. Add this $30 Silver Birds in the Backyard coin to your cart today!
