2014 25-CENT COLOURED COIN PINTAIL
A pair of pintails float serenely in the calm, mirror-like waters of their Canadian wetland habitat. The drake is in the foreground, his dark chocolate-brown head slightly turned to allow a full view of his grey-blue bill. His mate, a mottled brown hen, quietly wades alongside him in the background.
- This beautifully detailed 25-cent coin, featuring a pair of pintails paddling in the still waters of their Canadian wetland habitat, is the latest addition to the Royal Canadian Mint’s highly successful, sold-out series of collectible bird coins.
- The colouring and details exemplify the Royal Canadian Mint’s internationally renowned artistry and craftsmanship.
- The specimen finish and the ducks’ own reflections perfectly convey the stillness of the water, while the design itself is a celebration of a beloved species that can be found from the Canadian Arctic to the prairies.
- An excellent unique and detailed collectible for bird aficionados, nature lovers and conservationists.
