The design of the Bald Eagle coin is a sight to behold. On the observe side you find the predator in action, soaring upwards with its wings spread wide having just plucked a fish from the water. The dynamic image, created by Canadian natural science artist, Emily Damstra, bears the hallmarks of this incredible bird; powerful legs, fierce talons and charismatic wingspan. The feathers are finely engraved to accentuate the ruffle of flight. The bird is accompanied by the country of issue along the top and the initials ED to the right representing the name of the artist. Underneath the Eagle's talons are the numbers .9999 to indicate purity and the along the bottom rim the words: FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR, meaning pure silver in French. As Canada is still part of the British Commonwealth, the reverse side of the coins features the familiar profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II together with the year of mintage and the face value of the coin – in this case 5 dollars, although in the current financial climate the coins have a much greater value. The effigy of the Queen was designed by Susanna Blunt and has been used on all circulated bullion coins produced by the Royal Canadian Mint since 2003.
The bird of prey series was first introduced by the Royal Canadian Mint in February 2014 with the issue of the Peregrine Falcon. As part of a bi-annual release, the one ounce bald eagle silver coin was issued in August 2014 and is the second of the four-coin series. Although the bald eagle is synonymous with the United States, the predator is also a prominent species found in the Canada wild and is a fitting inclusion as one of the most formidable birds of prey known to man. Although adult bald eagles do not have any natural predators they were on the endangered species list, but thanks to the incredible work by wildlife associations throughout North America, have made a remarkable recovery. The birds now live safely in protected environments where they have the capacity to thrive. They typically mate for life and have a lifespan of around 30 years. The male eagle builds the nest and invites the female to share the home. They also share the responsibility of raising their young, taking it in turns to incubate the eggs until they are hatched. In any one season a couple will usually rear two or three eaglets who stay in the nest for around five months. Once the fledglings learn how to fly, the parents teach them how to hunt until they are ready to survive on their own and start their own families. As a predator, the bald eagle is formidable. Capable of reaching speeds in excess of 120km an hour, it has the capacity to dive rapidly and gather its prey into its lethal talons at ferocious speeds. Their vision is also six times greater than humans and because of transparent nictitating membranes, they can blink without losing sight of their prey.
