Description

It is one of CanadaÕs largest and most powerful birds of prey, a raptor whose high-pitched call is generally reserved for its mate and nestlings. Swooping and soaring in the skies over open country, the golden eagle is named for its gleaming feathers, which shine brighter than ever on the reverse of this .9999 pure gold coin.

The reverse design by artist Pierre Leduc features the right side-profile of a golden eagle (Aquila chrysaetos), an avian apex predator known for speed and agility in flight. Finely detailed engraving captures the fierce intensity of the eagleÕs stare and adds textural detail to its layered plumage. The side view also emphasizes the curvature of the hooked beak as the eagle emits a high-pitched yelp. Engraved on the reverse are the words ÒCANADAÓ, Ò500 DOLLARSÓ, Ò2019Ó, and Ò5 OZ 9999 AuÓ along with a unique 40th anniversary of the Gold Maple Leaf commemorative privy mark. The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

A commanding wildlife portrait that conveys all of the power and agility of one of the best-known birds of prey in the Northern Hemisphere.
