A day in the life of the Bald Eagle is filled with activity from dusk until dawn and beyond.From the moment it awakens, the eagle is at work - tending to its nest, soaring high, hunting, feeding its young, and taking pause to eat and rest. Dominated by a massive, sharply curved yellow beak, the adult eagle's distinctive head is covered to the neck with long, smooth white feathers. The arrangement of the feathers above its large golden eyes gives the adult eagle a frowning appearance that is perhaps a factor in the bird's symbolic associations with power. The most important attribute on this iconic head, however, is the eyes. It is this gifted vision that empowers the eagle to spot relatively small prey underwater or in grassy plains while soaring hundreds of meters in the air despite these prey animals' natural camouflage. This premium coin is part of the Royal Canadian Mints 2014 five-coin series of fine silver, gold, and platinum coins featuring four day in the life scenes of the iconic Bald Eagle. A beautiful full portrait of a bald eagle landing on a perch with a fish clutched in its talons. 99.99% pure silver coin, with beautiful selective gold plating.
This coin was designed by Canadian artist Claudio D'Angelo. It features a Bald Eagle, wings extended to their full span, standing on the branch of a pine tree. The eagle is viewed in profile from its left side, the details of its impressive wings and distinctive snowy head and tail rendered in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers and augmented with selective gold plating.In its powerful left claw, the eagle clutches a freshly caught fish. In the background, stylized clouds nod to the extreme heights at which the Bald Eagle prefers to perch and nest.
Each coin is encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded maroon clamshell with a black beauty box. Are also available for an additional charge.

They "cherry-pick" the best coins. Then submit them to be graded, certified, and slabbed by PCGS, NGC, ANACS, etc.
When a dealer searches coins, those that they sell in original Mint packaging are only lesser quality coins. Photos: When a listing offers multiples of the same coin, one coin is picked at random and photographed.
Since all coins offered in that listing are essentially identical, the coin photographed is representative of all coins offered. Surface areas that appear black on some proof coin photos are actually highly polished, mirror-bright metal reflecting the color of the camera. We often include proof coin photos with the coin slightly tilted to better depict the mirror bright surfaces. However, tilting the coin may resulting one side being slightly out of focus.
