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. This coin is the newest release, the Evening Grosbeak, which sold out almost immediately from the Royal Canadian Mint after its release at the end of 2012. Most of the earlier issues in this series also sold out quickly, and have appreciated in the secondary market. Some of the earlier issues now sell for more than $300 per coin.
The Evening Grosbeak features a golden-plumed male perched on a sumac bough.
Finish: Specimen with colour
Face value: 25 cents
Artist: Arnold Nogy (reverse), Susanna Blunt (obverse)
