The original Birds of Prey series was one of the RCM's best received bullion releases, and this new limited mintage reverse proof series is sure to be a favourite as well.

This is the second of four coins in the reverse proof finished "Birds of Prey" series, the Bald Eagle. A true apex predator with no natural enemies as an adult, the majestic bald eagle has long been the embodiment of power, wisdom and calmness. The bald eagle is not actually bald on its head, but rather has white feathers and was named after an older meaning of bald which more closely resembled "white-headed". The adult has a wingspan over 2 metres, weighs about 7 kilograms and has a standing height of about 1 metre. The females are noticeably larger than the males, up to about 25% and both are imposing predators that dominate their habitats. Bald Eagles make one of the largest nests of any bird, sometimes as much as 4 metres deep and 2.5 metres across and they can weigh up to a ton. Young bald eagles are different in plumage than mature adults and typically have light brown feathers around their head, rather than white. These rugged and majestic predators have been used as symbols by many cultures, from ancient American civilizations to the United States for whom it is their national symbol.

This beautifully finished coin makes the perfect addition to any silver or wildlife collection. With a limited mintage of only 100000 this bullion priced coin is sure to sell quickly.

In multiples of 10 this coin will ship in the RCM flex sealed sheets, while multiples of 200 will ship in an RCM monster box.
