The reverse design by Canadian artist Tony Bianco features an elevated view of an engraved park setting, where a stone path leads to a footbridge. In the foreground, the blue, black and white feathers of the blue jay (Cyanocitta cristata) make it easy to spy the colourful songbird perched among the red and gold sugar maple (Acer saccharum) leaves. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

“Playing the rich oranges of the maple leaves against the soft blues of the blue jay was a way to use complementary colour to make the coin stand out. I've been painting birds throughout my 35-year career as an artist, and a lot of my interest comes from time spent banding birds for scientific research. It was a great way to learn about the characteristics and beauty of these fascinating creatures.” - Tony Bianco: Artist

Did you know?

  • Cyanocitta cristata means the “crested, blue chattering bird.”
  • The blue feather colour isn’t due to any blue pigmentation—in fact, the feathers contain melanin, a brown pigment. The colour effect is caused by air pockets within the feather barbs that scatter visible light: while other wavelengths are absorbed by the melanin, only the blue light is refracted and it creates the perception of a blue-coloured feather. The proof: if you crush or backlight a blue jay feather, the blue disappears.
  • Black feather markings vary between individual blue jays, which may help them recognize one another.
  • A smart and highly adaptable bird, the blue jay has a variety of calls ranging from its namesake “jay” to a call that mimics hawks. One of its strangest behaviours is anting, where it rubs ants on its feathers to possibly eliminate parasites or render them less toxic before eating.


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