COMES WITH A BLACKLIGHT FLASHLIGHT! When viewed in the natural light, your coin features a daytime scene filled with summer sunlight that heightens the colors of the sky and the eagle. When viewed under a blacklight (included), a glowing sunset dramatically paints the sky and adds longer shadows to the surface of the water below.

SIMPLY STUNNING COLORS! The gorgeous hues of the sky and the large, adult bald eagle itself add drama to the scene!

STRATEGIC LAYERING! The water element brings all the technologies together, with shadows and a glowing sunset painted onto the transparent blue enamel, which colors the engraved underwater view.

The bald eagle is the lord of its realm as it swiftly glides high in the skies above the forest. This superb pure silver coin pays tribute to North America’s largest bird of prey, whose hunting prowess leaves little doubt of its regal authority in the wild.

Bald_Eagle_Flying.jpgA Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art by Wildlife Artist Tony Bianco!
Set over Pacific coastal waters, the design by Julius Csotonyi evokes a sense of awe and reverence for both the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and its coastal habitat. The multi-layered design depicts a sunny, summer day along the rocky shoreline, where the engraved evergreen trees reach for the blue-colored sky overhead. Talons at the ready, a bald eagle swoops low over the shallow water, where translucent blue enamel stands in for the sky’s reflection without obscuring the underwater view. When viewed under a blacklight, the same scene transitions to dusk, as a fiery sunset lights up the sky and casts longer shadows on the water.

The Magnificent Bald Eagle
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 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.
