The amazing bald eagle- Haliaeetus leucocephalus -is 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 meters, a standing height of about 1 meter, and an average weight of up to 7 kilograms. Females are generally larger than males. 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.
This long-lived bird can survive nearly 30 years in the wild and even longer in captivity. Nesting in tall trees near large bodies of water and well away from human habitation, bald eagles survive on a diet of fish, birds, invertebrates, and small mammals, but are opportunistic feeders who will also steal from other predators and eat carrion. From the Royal Canadian Mint's renowned collection of coins featuring the wild animals of Canada, we are proud to present this 2015 Fine Silver Bald Eagle Fractional Set-a collectible keepsake of Canada's natural beauty. Celebrate the life and habits of an astonishing Canadian predator with a coin of stunning artistry; this silver set uniquely captures the majesty and strength of the bald eagle, a universal symbol of freedom. Features a beautifully engraved and frosted eagle portrait against a brilliant background.For our Canadian customers, this coin is GST/HST exempt. The reverse image was designed by award-winning artist Derek C. Wicks, who was twice named the National Artist of the Year by Ducks Unlimited. Each set is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maple wood case with a graphic beauty box. Check out my other items. Be sure to add me to your favorites list. " Unsearched" - All of the coins offered in this listing are "unsearched". 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. This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Coins: Canada\Commemorative".
