Celebrating 75 Years of Ducks Unlimited Canada: The Mallard-Icon of Canadian Wetlands

This silver 10-dollar coin measures 34 millimetres and weighs 15.87 grams. The reverse image by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant features a mallard pair walking together along the snow-dusted shore of a Canadian waterway in late autumn, preparing themselves, perhaps, for the first leg of their migratory journey to warmer climes. Softly camouflaged by the tall reeds and other wetland vegetation lining the iced-over pond, the mottled brown-and-white hen steps forward, one foot raised to her belly-perhaps to be warmed by the downy feathers there. Her reflection is visible in the ice below. The drake, standing just behind and beside his mate, glances out across the unseen waterway as he steps carefully over a bed of snapped, snow-covered reeds that overspill the bounds of the raised circular frame surrounding the image. Engraved with the face value, '10 dollars' and 'Canada 2013.' The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
