Silver Canadian Bald Eagle

Monex Product Silver Canadian Bald Eagle

SECOND COIN IN THE 1 OZ. 99.99% PURE SILVER BULLION “CANADIAN BIRDS OF PREY” 4-COIN SERIES (2014)

An apex predator with no natural enemies as an adult, the amazing Bald Eagle has long been a potent symbol of vision, power, and stoicism. The adult boasts a wing span of more than 2 metres, a standing height of about 1 metre, and an average weight of up to 7 kilograms. Nesting in tall trees near large bodies of water and well away from human habitation, bald eagles survive on a diet of fish, birds, invertebrates, and small mammals, but are opportunistic feeders that will also steal from other predators and eat carrion.

  • 1-ounce 99.99% pure silver coin crafted in bullion finish; an attractive acquisition for both first-time precious metals buyers and long-term investors.

DESIGN

The reverse image by Canadian artist Emily Damstra features a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) just having caught a fish. The eagle dominates the image, its stunning wings spread wide as it is viewed in full-body profile from its left side. Here we see the Bald Eagle’s characteristic dark body and wings, white head and tail, and powerful legs and talons.

The obverse features the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
