A true apex predator with no natural enemies as an adult, the majestic bald eagle has long been the embodiment of power, wisdom and calmness. The bald eagle is not actually bald on its head but rather has white feathers and was named after an older meaning of bald, which more closely resembled "white-headed". The adult has a wingspan of over 2 metres, weighs about 7 kilograms and has a standing height of about 1 metre. The females are noticeably larger than the males, up to about 25%, and both are imposing predators that dominate their habitats. Bald Eagles make one of the largest nests of any bird, sometimes as much as 4 metres deep and 2.5 metres across and they can weigh up to a ton. Young bald eagles are different in plumage than mature adults and typically have light brown feathers around their heads rather than white. These rugged and majestic predators have been used as symbols by many cultures, from ancient American civilizations to the United States, for whom it is their national symbol.
The obverse features the Susanna Blunt effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II 5 Dollars 2014"
The reverse features an adult bald eagle viewed from the left in full flight with a fish in its talons. Its wings are spread and the eagle fills nearly the entire centre of the coin. It is surrounded by the words 'Canada Fine Silver 1 oz Argent Pur 9999" and the artist's initials.
This beautifully rendered coin is made from one ounce of 9999 pure silver and makes the perfect addition to any silver or wildlife collection. With a limited mintage of only 1 million coins worldwide, this bullion-priced coin is sure to sell quickly.
