Bald Eagles are found across Canada and much of wild North America. They thrive on the Pacific Coast in particular.
Bald Eagles prefer to nest in large trees near isolated, well-stocked bodies of water. Their nests are among the largest in the world, sometimes several meters in height! The great Bald Eagle is an amazing predator. It has come to freedom, liberty, majesty, strength and individualism in North America-particularly for its well-known symbolic status in the United States of America.
Eagles, in general, are renowned as much for their hunting skills, speed, and strength as for their striking looks and size. A large brown-feathered raptor with white-feathered head and tail, razor-sharp talons and sharp hooked beak, the Bald Eagle's vision is four times sharper than that of humans, and is key to its hunting prowess. This coin is a perfect gift for everyone for whom the bald eagle symbolizes the love of freedom, liberty, service, and the enduring wilderness of North America.A special gift for any bird watcher. 12th issue in this series of intricate 1/25 oz.
This stunning gold coin uniquely captures the majesty and strength of the Bald Eagle, a universal symbol of freedom. Each coin is 1/25 troy ounce of fine gold, 99.99% pure! Limited to 10,000 coins worldwide. The coin was designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tenant and features a profile portrait of a Bald Eagle. Presenting the animal from its left side, the portrait features in striking detail the light-colored head and dark upper wings and body of this majestic raptor.
Its sharp hooked beak is open while its small, far-seeing left eye glares authoritatively at the viewer. The varied textures and tones of the eagle's feathers are captured through expert engraving and finishing. The reverse is engraved with the word "CANADA, " the date "2013" and the face value of 50 CENTS.

Many coin dealers "search" all coins when they are received from the Mint. They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed. Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera.
We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus. Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.
