- Contains 1 oz of .9999 fine Silver.
- Comes in a maroon clamshell with a custom outer box along with a certificate of authenticity.
- Obverse: Displays a right-facing profile of Queen Elizabeth II.
- Reverse: Features a beautiful engraved portrait of an American avocet on its approach to a shallow marsh. Against the rolling foothills and the row of cottonwoods in the background, the avocet prepares to land amid the grasses that sway in the tranquil breeze. One of the shorebird’s long legs skims the surface of the water to slow its descent, creating a soft wake in this otherwise tranquil setting.
- Selective color over detailed engraving recreates the American avocet’s elegant appearance and beautiful plumage.
