Design:

Designed by Tony Bianco, your coin offers a life-like representation of a convocation of bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) at a communal roost site. A profile view allows for a close examination of the eagle’s distinctive features and famous plumage, with all three raptors fixing their piercing gazes on something that lies just beyond the reverse. In a show of authority, two of the stately birds have turned their heads to glare at the possible intruder, while the sharp, hooked beak of the uppermost eagle is open to suggest a high-pitched warning has been issued. The reverse also includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.


Did you know…
  • Breeding populations are concentrated in coastal British Columbia, where most of those wintering in Canada also congregate. Larger nesting populations are also found along the coast of Newfoundland and Cape Breton, N.S., as well as in the northern boreal forests that stretch from Northwestern Ontario to Alberta.
  • While there are 59 species of eagles worldwide, the bald eagle is one of just two found in Canada (the Golden Eagle is the other), and the only species exclusive to North America.
  • A bald eagle isn’t bald at all — it has roughly 7,200 feathers. Instead, its English name comes from “piebald,” meaning something that has patches of two different colours—a reference to the distinctive contrast between its dark brown-feathered body and white-feathered head.
  • Adding to a metre-tall standing height, the bald eagle’s wingspan measures over 2 metres!
  • The expression “eagle eye” is synonymous with keen eyesight, and for good reason: the eagle’s vision is about four times more powerful than ours! Eagle eyes see in full colour and have two focal centres, allowing them to view in front and behind in a single glance.

Packaging:

Your coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box.

THS is an incredible coin! I realize that the Bald Eagle is native to a good chunk of North America, but it is the national bird of the US. The Mint has done an excellent job of depicting the natural eagle, rather than the heraldic image usually seen on US coins.
