Enjoy a bird-theme showcase of Mother Nature’s contrasting colours.

Easily recognized by its pointed crest, the cardinal’s bright red plumage adds a welcome splash of colour to our landscapes in any season. But its conspicuous appearance can also lift our spirits on a quiet winter day, when most of nature’s colours are tucked under a thick blanket of snow—as seen on this selectively coloured 99.99% pure silver coin.

A beautiful piece that’s sure to brighten up any nature- or bird-themed collection.

SPECIAL FEATURES

  • For nature lovers. Complete your collection of Colourful Birds coins! This fine silver collectible makes a great gift for bird lovers, and a great addition to any Canadiana- or nature-themed collection.
  • Limited mintage. Only 7,500 coins are available to collectors worldwide.
  • Includes serialized certificate. The Royal Canadian Mint certifies all of its collector coins.

SELECTIVE COLOUR

A selective application of colour highlights one of winter’s brightest colour displays, courtesy of a bright red cardinal and some winter-hardy plant species, transforming this design into a celebration of Mother Nature’s contrasting colours—just as it did with 2021’s Blue Jay and 2022’s Cedar Waxwing.

AN IMMERSIVE VIEW

The raised perspective pulls you into the scene and creates the impression of standing directly behind the cardinal, among the evergreens.

DID YOU KNOW?

  • Brighter is better: Those crimson-coloured feathers are key to mating success for the male, whereas the female is a more subdued mix of tan and grey colours.
  • Male cardinals are rather territorial: they can mistake their reflection for a possible intruder and may spend hours fighting this imagined threat!
  • Canada’s northern cardinal population is steadily increasing thanks to backyard feeders (cardinals love sunflower seeds). The year-round resident was largely limited to southeastern regions of Canada but recently, it has been spotted as far west as Manitoba and east in Newfoundland and Labrador.

PACKAGING

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

ABOUT THE ROYAL CANADIAN MINT

The Royal Canadian Mint is known as one of the most reputable mints in the world. The Ottawa Branch of the Royal Mint opened in 1908 and was renamed The Royal Canadian Mint in 1931 when control was transferred to the Canadian government. The Royal Canadian Mint is renowned for producing some of the highest quality and purity of gold and silver bullion coins and bars in the world. Their high standards for excellence and quality allowed them to be the first refinery to manufacture 9999 fine gold bullion coins in 1982, as well as the first to reach 99999 fine gold purity in 1999.
