2013 Canada $3 Hummingbird & Morning Glory Fine Silver
The hummingbird and the Morning Glory are two perennially beautiful fixtures of the Canadian garden in summer. Here, they are joined in exquisite harmony around a sparkling red Swarovski crystal element. A coin attractive enough to be worn as jewellery, only from the Royal Canadian Mint.
This 3 dollar coin is certified to be 99.99% pure silver with a diameter of 27 millimetres and a metal weight of 7.96 grams. Designed to be worn as jewellery, this coin features Canadian artist Yves Berube reverse image of a hummingbird and Morning Glory vine centered with a light Siam red Swarovski crystal element.
Engraved in the finest detail, hummingbird and vine seem to come to life against the polished gold field. The hummingbird, eternally drawn to the sparkling treasure at the centre of the image, is captured forever in a moment that, in life, is exceptionally fleeting. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
