Official issue in honour of 100 years of bird protection in Belgium.

Bird catching almost seemed like a national sport in the last century. The winged creatures were caught for their feathers, ended up on our plates or had to participate in finch singing competitions. The way they were captured was also downright brutal, resulting in certain death. Around 1922, people in Belgium started to unite to put an end to the abuse against birds. Gradually, we have developed a conscience for birds’ welfare and legislation and regulations have ensured a more humane treatment of birds.

Birds that occur in Belgium are depicted on the coincard in a pseudoscientific and nostalgic way. This refers back to more than a hundred years ago, when the interest in birds developed into wonder. On the coin you see a happily whistling robin. The male resides in Belgium all year round and is a symbol of hope.
