Canada 25-CENTS (KM1169a) Peregrine Falcon
In 2011, the Royal Canadian Mint announced the "Legendary Nature" quarter series. There are three designs, and each design has two versions: regular, and colourized. There were 6.25 million of each coin minted, and all were released into circulation in 2012.
The February design features the Peregrine Falcon. Once at serious risk due to DDT use and other factors, recovery efforts have been remarkably successful, and today the falcon's conservation status is rated as "least concern."
