When it comes to hunting, the bald eagle's most important assets are its eyes, its talons, and its exceptional diving speed.Eagle vision is about six times stronger than that of humans. In addition, transparent nictitating membranes on their eyes allow eagles to "blink" without losing sight of prey for even a moment. The eagle's claws are its key tool for hunting, nest building and more. Composed of three front toes and one back toe, all tipped with long keratinous talons, its claws are connected to tendons in the eagle's legs and feet that allow it to clamp down on captured prey with crushing force.
Once the hunter has spotted the day's catch, it will dive at speeds in excess of 120 kilometers per hour, snatching its prey from the water or ground with lightning speed. The eagle later uses a claw to hold its catch while tearing at it with its sharp curved beak to eat. Rendered in exquisite detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers, this coin showcases the bald eagle having just caught a fish.

" Unsearched" - All of the coins offered in this listing are "unsearched". Many coin dealers "search" all coins when they are received from the Mint.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.
Whenever possible, we use actual photos of our coins, rather than just stock artwork from the Mint. We frequently update and upgrade the photos that appear with our listings, using improved cameras and lenses and better lighting. We will honor your requests for additional photos as quickly as our schedule permits.This item is in the category "Coins & Paper Money\Coins: Canada\Commemorative".
