A soaring eagle is the very picture of serenity, but its descent is a lesson in strength and elegance. This king of the skies is at home in some of Canada’s wildest and most magnificent landscapes, like the coastal setting on your coin. Engraving and colour technologies combine like never before to create a dazzling day-to-night transformation. Like a bright sunny day, your coin is filled with light and shadows—from the eagle’s silhouette on the blue-enamelled water, to the frosted mountains in the distance. When viewed under a blacklight (included), the glowing sunset adds a colourful twist, while the trees and mountains cast long shadows that are suddenly visible on the water!

Design:

Set over Canada’s Pacific coastal waters, the reverse image by Julius Csotonyi evokes a sense of awe and reverence for both the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and its coastal habitat. The multi-layered design depicts a sunny, summer day along the rocky shoreline, where the engraved evergreen trees reach for the blue-coloured sky overhead. Talons at the ready, a bald eagle swoops low over the shallow water, where translucent blue enamel stands in for the sky’s reflection without obscuring the underwater view. When viewed under a blacklight, the same scene transitions to dusk, as a fiery sunset lights up the sky and casts longer shadows on the water. The reverse includes the word “CANADA”, the year “2019” and the face value, “20 DOLLARS”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • A bald eagle can live nearly 30 years in the wild, and even longer in captivity.
  • Females are slightly larger-sized than males, but an adult generally has a wingspan of more than 2 metres and may weigh up to 7 kilograms.
  • Science suggests the old adage “Red sky at night, sailor’s delight” holds true: the best sunsets occur when there is clear air to the west, which brings favourable weather the next day.
  • A revered cultural symbol of vision and strength, the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is Canada’s largest bird of prey and the only eagle species found exclusively in North America. Much of Canada’s bald eagle population is concentrated along the Pacific coast, where tall trees near large bodies of water provide an ideal nesting site. Its vision is roughly four times more powerful than our own, which allows it to spot fish from high above before swooping down to catch prey with its razor-sharp talons.

Packaging:

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