Abundant throughout North America, the mallard is one of the continent’s most well-known and best-loved species of wild duck. This fine silver collectable coin features a pair of mallards together in full colour. The plumage of mallards is instantly recognizable. The male, or drake, has a bright green head, ochre yellow bill, and brown chest. He bears patches (known as “specula”) of indigo blue on its greyish, brown wings. On the other hand, the female, or hen, bears mottled brown and white plumage, sharing with the drake a striking indigo speculum decorating the upper back edge of each wing.
All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
