The eagle's feathers have a ruffled appearance with a greatly accentuated shape and texture that are portrayed with uncompromising depth and detail in the coin's extraordinary high relief. The coin is struck with a proof finish that provides an impeccable mirror-like shine across the background to accentuate the depth and visual impact of the engraving and extraordinary high relief. And on the obverse, the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.

Did you know…
  • The bald eagle is the only eagle in the world that is found exclusively in North America. It lives throughout Canada, but is often associated with British Columbia's temperate coastline where tall trees provide the perfect habitat and ice-free water provides a year-round supply of food.
  • Bald eagles have an estimated 7,000 feathers arranged in several layers and can be rotated to increase/decrease their insulating effect to protect against heat, cold, snow and rain.
  • Studies suggest the bald eagle can see up to 7 times farther than humans, and its brain compensates for light refracting through the water that makes it look like a fish, its favourite food, is in a different location. Its "angry" expression is created by the shape of its skull that shades its eyes from the sun. It even has a transparent inner eyelid for added protection, and bristles on its beak to keep dust at bay.
  • Everything about the bald eagle is designed for hunting in flight. Eagle bones are hollow and lightweight, only 5-6% of their body weight compared to 12-15% for humans. The bald eagle's wings are shaped to soar with minimal flapping, and it can flex and spread its flight feathers like fingers to get more lift.
