Description

This 2014 $5 premium coin is struck in 1/10th of an ounce of 99.99% pure gold, and is part of the Royal Canadian Mint's 2014 five-coin series featuring four scenes from the daily life of the majestic bald eagle. This creature is Canada's largest bird of prey, and has symbolized speed, strength and power throughout Canada's history. Some First Nations cultures believe that the bald eagle is sacred and holy, a spiritual messenger between the gods and humans. A low mintage of only 3,000 coins will likely entice collectors of precious metal coins, making this piece a splendid addition to any collection of nature-themed coins. HST/GST exempt.

 

The Design:

This coin reflects the fierce stoicism of the bird, a striking portrait shows the creature in a three-quarter view, its piercing gaze and distinctive feathers have been carefully engraved and selectively polished. The proof finish boasts a mirrored background of elegant, polished gold, while the words "CANADA 2014 - 5 DOLLARS" are emblazoned around the rim of this coin. This charmingly compact piece is an excellent way to begin collecting all five of the coins in this exciting Bald Eagle series, a unique, artistic way of esteeming this iconic aerial predator.
