The reverse image, designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tennant, features a painted barn owl in full flight, viewed from its left side as it flaps its broad white and Gold wings. The owl's left profile is rendered to stunning effect, with the side of its distinctive oval face. The reverse is engraved with the word “CANADA,” the date “2013,” and the face value of “25 CENTS.” The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. A beautiful gift for people who love birds, natural imagery, exquisite natural artwork, and Canadian themes. Comes to you in the original box with numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
