The 2014 Canadian Bald Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin is the 2nd release in the Royal Canadian Mint’s Birds of Prey series, which debuted in February of 2014 with the Peregrine Falcon. As with many Royal Canadian Mint coins, this Bald Eagle coin celebrates Canada’s spectacular wildlife with a depiction of one of its most well known animals. Like all of the coins in the Birds of Prey Series there the mintage for the Bald Eagle bullion silver coin is limited to 1,000,000 coins worldwide. The Bald Eagle and the rest of the Birds of Prey Series make for the perfect edition to any wildlife themed coin collection or bird watching enthusiast.
The coin’s reverse was designed by Canadian artist Emily Damstra and features a bald eagle with wings fully extended in flight. The eagle is rendered in exceptional detail, displaying the bird’s feathers and talons. The bald eagle depicted on this coin clutches a freshly-caught fish as it flies. Surrounding the eagle, which dominates the reverse, are inscriptions bearing the words “CANADA,” “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR,” and the coin’s fineness of “9999.” The artist’s initials are located just off the tip of the eagle’s wing on the right side of the coin.
The obverse contains the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, designed by Susanna Blunt. Surrounding the queen’s image are the inscriptions “ELIZABETH II,” the denomination of “5 DOLLARS,” and the date of “2014.”
The Royal Canadian Mint is known for the exceptional purity of its coins and for their beautiful designs, and this series of .9999 pure silver coins continues that trend.
