Despite the name, bald eagles are not actually bald. The use of the name bald eagle is derived from an older usage of the term to refer to someone who was “white headed.” The bald eagle appeared in the original Birds of Prey Series from the Royal Canadian Mint, and now reappears on the reverse proof striking of Birds of Prey designs on the 2017 1 oz Silver Canadian Bald Eagle Coin.
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 2017 Canadian Silver Bald Eagle coins in this listing have a perfect certification from the NGC. Coins with a PF70 grade exhibit full, original mint luster and lack all detracting flaws on the surface areas.
In order to qualify as an Early Release coin, these Silver Bald Eagles must arrive at the NGC for certification within a set timeframe. To qualify, coins must arrive for certification within the first 30 days of the release date the Royal Mint sets for the coins.
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.
