This fine silver coin features the Pileated Woodpecker (Dryocopus pileatus), capturing its distinctive plumage, from its red crest to the black-and-white stripes that run down its neck. This large bird can be found in the forests across Canada chiseling holes in the bark of trees with its long pointed beak as it hunts for insects.
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.
