This silver coin features the American Avocet, one of the birds protected by the 1916 Migratory Birds Convention between Canada and the United States.
The Migratory Birds Convention Act was a Canadian law passed to protect birds, their eggs and their nests from commercial activities or hunting.
The reverse of this coin displays a colourized American Avocet gliding over a wetland background. The colour is delicately applied, bringing the image of the avocet to life.
