Each of the 2017 1 oz Canadian Silver Bald Eagle Reverse Proofs in this listing earned PF69 grades from the NGC. Coins in this condition are considered near-perfect, with full, original mint luster still present. However, there are also a minimum of two minor detracting flaws, which are limited to minuscule hairlines or contact marks outside the primary focal areas.
To earn the Early Release designation, these Royal Canadian Mint coins must arrive at the NGC for certification within 30 days of the initial release date as set by the mint.
Emily Damstra designed 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 youll 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 youll find the mirrored finish on the design sets on both sides, while the background field boasts a strong, frosted finish.
