The Design:

Enjoy a close-up view of this rare natural scene. The reverse image features a female bald eagle protecting her two young eaglets in their treetop nest. The female eagle dominates the centre of the image. Viewed from behind, her left eye turned warily to the viewer, she raises her long left wing in a protective stance. Her snowy tail feathers, dark body and distinctive head are engraved in stunning detail. The mother sits at the edge of her large nest, which is nestled among the boughs of a high treetop. The intricate weaving of twigs and branches is rendered in painstaking detail and accentuated with a combination of polishes. The head and tail of the mother as well as the delicate feathers of the baby birds, have been given a soft matte finish that stands proud against the brilliant polished background. Every detail has been considered and selectively treated to deliver the best possible finish. This coin also features unique edge lettering, with the words "FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR 1 OZ" engraved around the edge of the coin.

 

The Bald Eagle:

Canada's largest bird of prey—the bald eagle—is an amazing apex predator whose adult members have no natural enemies that hunt it in the wild. This massive raptor has a wing span exceeding 2 metres, a standing height of about 1 metre, and an average weight of up to 7 kilograms. Females are generally larger than males.
