Description

This $5 1/10th ounce pure platinum coin is dated 2014 and features a bald eagle. A day in the life of the Bald Eagle is filled with activity from dusk until dawn and beyond. From the moment it awakens, the eagle is at work—tending to its nest, soaring high, hunting, feeding its young, and taking pause to eat and rest. Now, while he is at rest, let's take a moment to study this apex hunter's fearsome countenance. Mintage limited to 3,000. HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

Designed by Canadian artist Derek C. Wicks this coin features a striking portrait of an eagle head in three-quarter profile. Viewed from its left side, the raptor fixes the viewer with its legendary gaze, its wide left eye staring powerfully below a snowy feathered brow. The intricate patterns of its white head feathers and dark neck feathers are rendered in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint Engravers, as are the sharp contours of its hooked beak.

The Bald Eagle:

Dominated by a massive, sharply curved yellow beak, the adult eagle's distinctive head is covered to the neck with long, smooth white feathers. The arrangement of the feathers above its large golden eyes gives the adult eagle a frowning appearance that is perhaps a factor in the bird's symbolic associations with power. The most important attribute on this iconic head, however, is the eyes. It is this gifted vision that empowers the eagle to spot relatively small prey underwater or in grassy plains while soaring hundreds of metres in the air.
