A portrait of power, the magnificent bald eagle in profile!An Original Work of Art
The design, created by award-winning Canadian wildlife artist Derek C. Wicks, who was twice named the National Artist of the Year by Ducks Unlimited, is an original work of art. A noble bald eagle surveys his domain, ever in search of a tasty salmon or elusive rabbit on which to dine. Each coin features a beautifully engraved and white-frosted cameo eagle portrait against a brilliant, mirrored background. So detailed is the engraving that the individual barbs and veins on each of the eagle's feathers can be seen!

The Magnificent Bald Eagle
Bald_Eagle_Flying.jpg The great Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) is a native North American bird of prey whose battle back from the brink of extinction in some areas in the 1970s, is a species success story. Today, its range covers most of North America, from Alaska to northern Mexico. In Canada, salmon-rich British Columbia is the astonishing hunter’s stronghold! However, this magnificent bird breeds in all provinces and territories. Its populations are regularly monitored by wilderness authorities.

Most people realize that (despite its name) the bald eagle is not actually bald. The term “bald” may come from an outmoded usage meaning “white”, or from the term “piebald,” which means “patchy.” The bald eagle’s head and tail are covered in bright white feathers and the remainder of its body is dark brown. It has a sharp hooked beak and large feet tipped with long, razor-like talons and small spicules (spikes) that make it an exceptional hunter.

Eagles are renowned for their amazing vision, which allows them to see up to seven times farther than humans. Their swiftness is also notable and they can reach especially high speeds when diving. They consume small mammals, snakes, other birds, and carrion.

A pair of magnificent North American bald eagles, the national bird of the United States, perched on a rocky shore of a fast moving river.A bald eagle’s nesting spot of choice is a large tree near an isolated, well-stocked body of water. Their nests are among the largest in the world, spanning over ten feet (three meters) and weighing up to a ton, and host two eaglets per breeding cycle. Bald eagles are believed to mate for life. Their mating dance is a sight to behold, as prospective partners take turns trying to impress one another with complicated aerial maneuvers that include cartwheels, talon-locking, and more.

Coastal eagles in more moderate climates tend to stay in the same territory year round; otherwise, eagles will migrate to coastal or southern wintering grounds. An apex predator exclusive to North America with no obvious natural enemies, the bald eagle population today seems to remain stable throughout most of its range.
