What could be more thrilling than catching a glimpse of the bald eagle in flight? Here, the Royal Canadian Mint offers a coin that captures some of that awe-inspired feeling: a $100 2014 fine silver coin depicting the majestic bald eagle. This is the third coin in a beloved series of $100 coins offered at face value. The bald eagle is Canada’s largest bird of prey, and has symbolized speed, strength and power throughout Canada’s history. In addition to this, some indigenous North American cultures believe this this creature to be sacred and holy, a spiritual messenger between the gods and humans. This coin reflects the fierce stoicism of this regal bird, captured here mid-flight with its magnificent wings poised elegantly; the engravers at the Royal Canadian Mint have outdone themselves once again, not missing a detail in the feathers of the bird or in the individual pine trees that dot the landscape below. This coin would make an excellent addition to any Canadiana or nature-themed collection, or gifted as a precious and symbolic keepsake.
