This 1/25th ounce pure gold coin features an image of a Bald Eagle. The coin weighs 1/25 of an ounce and has a nominal face value of 50 cents.
The coin was designed by Canadian artist Trevor Tenant and features a profile portrait of a Bald Eagle. Presenting the animal from its left side, the portrait features in striking detail the light-coloured head and dark upper wings and body of this majestic raptor. Its sharp hooked beak is open while its small, far-seeing left eye glares authoritatively at the viewer. The varied textures and tones of the eagle's feathers are captured through expert engraving and finishing. The reverse is engraved with the word "CANADA," the date "2013" and the face value of "50 CENTS."
The Bald Eagle:
The great Bald Eagle is an amazing predator whose image has become synonymous with the notions of freedom, majesty, strength and individualism in North America—particularly for its well-known symbolic status in the United States of America. Eagles, in general, are renowned as much for their hunting skills, speed and strength as for their striking looks and size. A large brown-feathered raptor with white-feathered head and tail, razor-sharp talons and sharp hooked beak, the Bald Eagle's vision is four times sharper than in humans, and is key to its hunting prowess.
