This fine silver collectable coin features the American Avocet (Recurvirostra americana), capturing its graceful descent into the marsh habitat in full colour. This large shorebird can be seen wading through the shallow wetlands and lakes of Canada's prairie provinces where it comes to breed and raise its young.

The Migratory Birds Convention, signed in 1916, stands as a groundbreaking milestone in the history of wildlife conservation. It's enforced by Canada's Migratory Birds Convention Act and America's Migratory Birds Treaty Act, both of which protect species, nests, and eggs from unregulated hunting or commercial activities.

All collectable coins have been previously owned. Conditions will vary.
