These coins depict the amazing bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), Canada’s largest bird of prey and the only eagle exclusive to North America. An apex predator with no natural enemies, the bald eagle has long been a potent symbol of vision, power, and stoicism.
The adult boasts a wing span of more than 2 metres, a standing height of about 1 metre, and an average weight of up to 7 kilograms. Females are generally larger than males and fiercely protect their chicks in the nest. The renowned raptor is noted for its distinctive dark-feathered body and white-feathered head, large golden eyes, bright yellow beak, and massive yellow claws armed with sharp, powerful talons.
• Two unique features for cutting-edge security include precise radial lines and a micro-engraved lasered maple leaf in the coin's field. In the center of this mark, visible under magnification, is the numeral 2018, denoting the coin's year of issue.
• Distinctive finish features a bald eagle and nest in brilliant relief on a lined textured background.
• An attractive acquisition for both first-time precious metal buyers and long-term investors.
• A striking addition to your precious metals portfolio.
