Description from the MINT:

Found throughout southern Canada in the warm summer months, this unique midsized bird is one of only a few North American duck species to nest in tree cavities. Those situated in warmer areas are known to produce two broods per season - the Wood Duck is the only duck in North America to do so.This coin presents a unique opportunity to own a keepsake celebrating the 75th anniversary of Ducks Unlimited Canada.Special features
