A day in the life of the Bald Eagle is filled with activity from dusk until dawn and beyond. From the moment it awakens, the eagle is at work—tending to its nest, soaring high, hunting, feeding its young, and taking pause to eat and rest. Now, while he is at rest, let's take a moment to study this apex hunter's fearsome countenance.
Dominated by a massive, sharply curved yellow beak, the adult eagle's distinctive head is covered to the neck with long, smooth white feathers. The arrangement of the feathers above its large golden eyes gives the adult eagle a frowning appearance that is perhaps a factor in the bird's symbolic associations with power. The most important attribute on this iconic head, however, is the eyes. It is this gifted vision that empowers the eagle to spot relatively small prey underwater or in grassy plains while soaring hundreds of metres in the air despite these prey animals' natural camouflage.

#1 - 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Bald Eagle With Fish - Only $89.95
Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo your coin features a Bald Eagle just having caught a fish. In the lower left side of the image, the water splashes high as the eagle wrenches the fish from its watery home. The eagle dominates the image, its stunning wings spread wide as it is viewed in full-body profile from its right side. Here we see the Bald Eagle's characteristic dark body and wings, white head and tail, and powerful legs and talons. In the distant background, a rocky point dotted with sparse conifers reaches out into the water, showcasing the Bald Eagle's preference for isolated waterside habitats.
#2 - 1 oz. Fine Silver Coin - Soaring Bald Eagle - Only $99.95
Designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo your coin features a unique portrait of a Bald Eagle in flight. As the eagle turns abruptly in mid-air, angling itself to dive, you are presented with a view of the graceful raptor's underside. Its outstretched wings, dark body, powerful legs, white tail and head, and yellow beak and talons are presented in stunning detail and full colour through selective paint application. In the background, we see the isolated shoreline of the body of water below. A steep pine-covered hill rises to the left, its rocky shore dotted with islands and outcroppings. In the far distance, a similar shoreline rises on the opposite side of the water.
#3 - 1 oz. Fine Silver Gold-Plated Coin - Perched Bald Eagle - Only $114.95
Your coin was designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo and features a Bald Eagle, wings extended to their full span, standing on the branch of a pine tree. The eagle is viewed in profile from its left side, the details of its impressive wings and distinctive snowy head and tail rendered in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers and augmented with selective gold plating. In its powerful left claw, the eagle clutches a freshly caught fish. In the background, stylized clouds nod to the extreme heights at which the Bald Eagle prefers to perch and nest.
Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.
