A fantastic follow on to the very successful Royal Canadian Mint's 2022 'The Mighty Bison', this Striking Bald Eagle coin was designed by Canadian wildlife artist Claudio D’Angelo.
The coin’s reverse features a portrait of two bald eagles (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) on a pine bough. These majestic raptors are positioned in a way that best showcases their features and also implies motion, with the perched eagle holding its wings outward while gazing at its companion, while the newly landed eagle tries to secure its grip. The obverse features a field pattern and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
At once graceful and formidable, the bald eagle is easily one of the most visually striking birds. Its dignified appearance, whether in flight or at rest, never fails to inspire awe - as it does on this magnificant coin.
