Original Birds of Prey coins debuted from the Royal Canadian Mint in February 2014, and ran through August 2015. The four-coin series featured the Peregrine Falcon, Bald Eagle, Red-tailed Hawk, and Great Horned Owl. Emily Damstra, who first came to fame at the mint with the final two designs of the Canadian Wildlife Series, designed all four coins in the original series.
Emily Damstra was the designer behind all four coins in the series. Damstra had previously made waves with her stunning Canadian Wildlife Series designs that featured on the final two coins in that series, both of which were released in 2013 just ahead of the Birds of Prey Series.
The obverse face of these Royal Canadian Mint silver coins bears the image of Queen Elizabeth II in right-profile relief. This current image has been in use since 2003 on Canadian coins and was designed by Susanna Blunt.
On the reverse of the 2017 1 oz Canadian Silver Bald Eagle Reverse Proof Coin you’ll find the image of the bald eagle. The bald eagle is an opportunistic feeder that lives primarily on fish captured by swooping down and snatching them from the water. The range of the bald eagle includes all of the contiguous United States, northern Mexico, Alaska, and Canada.
As a reverse proof, these specimens have a finish that is opposite the standard proof. On these coins you’ll find the mirrored finish on the design sets on both sides, while the background field boasts a strong, frosted finish.
The Royal Canadian Mint is the official sovereign mint of Canada. Opened in Ottawa, the federal capital city in 1908, today it also consists of a secondary minting facility in the city of Winnipeg that opened in 1980.
