Description

This 2018 $15 fine silver coin pays tribute Canada’s largest bird of prey, the bald eagle. The bald eagle has a commanding presence wherever it appears, whether in solitary flight or perched in the tallest trees. The classic wildlife portrait on the reverse is imbued with a sense of reverence for this imposing hunter and spiritual animal, which has long symbolized power and wisdom in the wild.

The coin weighs one ounce of pure silver, and has an extremely limited mintage of just 5,500. As a pure silver coin issued by the Royal Canadian Mint, this item is HST/GST exempt.


The Design:

The reverse image by Tony Bianco offers a life-like representation of convocation of bald eagles at a communal roost site. A profile view allows for a close examination of the eagle’s distinctive features and famous plumage, with all three raptors fixing their piercing gazes on something that lies just beyond the reverse. In a show of authority, two of the stately birds have turned their heads to glare at the possible intruder, while the sharp, hooked beak of the uppermost eagle is open to suggest a high-pitched warning has been issued. The reverse also includes the engraved word “CANADA” and the year “2018”. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
