Own a 2 oz. fine silver portrait that shows the bald eagle from a whole new angle.
Whether soaring in solitude or surveying from atop the tallest tree, the bald eagle is celebrated as a sharp-eyed symbol of strength. But the regal raptor can be surprisingly tender—it provides nourishment and models behaviours for its young to ensure that the next generation survives and thrives.
This stunning 2 oz. coin features multifaceted engraving, an innovative approach to minting dimensional art. On the coin’s reverse, both the eagle and the eaglets are composed of multiple facets that elevate the art by reflecting light from various angles.
With a uniformly brilliant finish, many of the portrait’s finer details would get lost in the mix; so we approached this family portrait by using multiple finishes that help convey depth—from the frosted nest in the foreground to the frosted landscape in the background, and the brilliant facets of the eagles.
On your coin’s obverse, an array of laser-engraved polygon shapes—a nod to the reverse—form a dynamic pattern behind the effigy.
The reverse design by Canadian artist Steve Hepburn offers a rare glimpse of a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) family. The wildlife portrait is enhanced with multifaceted engraving that gives the parent and the three eaglets a more three-dimensional form, as the mother returns to her treetop nest. The obverse features a polygon pattern and the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt.
