With a tilt of the coin, the gold-plated hummingbird circles around the rose gold-plated petals of a zinniaone of the many flowering plants in Canada to which the tiny bird's feeding contributes to their cross-pollination. A visually striking design that is elegant, inspired and INTERACTIVE! A sophisticated design that magnificently merges art and technology; engraving and casting; silver and (rose) gold.
The reverse design includes a show-stopping, interactive element: tilt the coin to help the "flying" hummingbird circle around the zinnia. Gold and rose gold plating elegantly highlights the crowning touches (the hummingbird and flower) of this floral-inspired design, while a proof finish lights up the engraved shrub like sunlight on a summer day. Beauty that won't whither or fade. This gorgeous coin and its hummingbird-and-flower topper will forever bloom and enchant as a treasured part of your collection.The reverse image by artist Eric Boyer presents a close view of a cluster of zinnias, flowers that are native primarily to North America. The leaves and flowers fill much of the engraved reverse, where the proof finish is as luminous as a bright summer day. The image is topped by two sterling silver-cast elements: a rose gold-plated bloom and a gold-plated hummingbird. Firmly affixed to the coin's surface, the flower is fully opened to attract hummingbirds and pollinating insects. But the moveable hummingbird adds an interactive twist to this dimensional design; using gravitational force, the "flying" hummingbird is able to circle around the zinnia whenever the coin is tilted from one side to the other. The reverse includes the engraved word "CANADA" and the year, "2020". The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
