The Birds of Canada coins have been one of the most popular series ever produced by the Royal Canadian Mint, with two coins issued each year since 2007. Demand for some of these coins has far exceeded the mintage, with most earlier coins selling out early, and some appreciating in value in the secondary market as much as ten times the original issue price. This is the first coin in the series for 2014, and features the Eastern Meadowlark.
The Meadowlark displays its vibrant colours in mid-chant, perched on a fencepost amidst the wildflowers.
