The 2014 Silver Canadian Bald Eagle is the second coin in the series, following the 2014 Silver Canadian Peregrine Falcon coin which was released earlier in the year. Each coin in the series holds a legal tender value in Canada of of $5 CAD, weighs one troy ounce and contains .9999 pure silver. With only 4 coins scheduled for release, the Bald Eagle marks the halfway point in the series and is the last coin scheduled to be introduced in 2014.
On the obverse of the coin is the familiar profile of Queen Elizabeth II; a popular icon featured on many of the RCM’s coins. Her name “Elizabeth II” is marked above her head. Below her is the face value and minting year “5 DOLLARS 2014.” The reverse of the coin is where the coin gains its recognition, however. This side showcases the North American bird; the Bald Eagle. The eagle is in flight, carrying a fresh catch in his talons; a fish. The mint has done an excellent job depicting the iconic eagle, with great attention having been paid to each aspect of the creature. Listed above the animal is an inscription for the nation: “CANADA.” Below are the purity and weight: “9999” and “FINE SILVER 1 OZ ARGENT PUR.”
