Eagle - predator   Snake - prey 
The eagle is a (generally) large sized bird of prey meaning that the eagle is one of the most dominant predators in the sky. Eagles are most commonly found in the Northern Hemisphere including Europe, Asia and North America. Eagles are also found on the African continent. Eagles are dominant and ruthless predators in their environment and eagles therefore have very few natural predators themselves. Eagles are most likely to be hunted by smaller animals when they are chicks or still young and inexperienced so they are fairly vulnerable. Eagles use their dagger beaks and sharp talons to hunt fish, snakes, frogs, other birds, and small mammals. The most important prey are Snakes. Mostly hunts nonpoisonous snakes from the family Colubridae, for example the Grass Snake Natrix natrix, but is also capable of killing venomous snakes from the family Viperidae. Suitable habitat for the Eagle must also be suitable habitat for Snakes and other reptiles, the eagle's most important prey. That means, the short-toed Eagle often is found in warm climate where plenty of Snakes are available. Hunts either from a perch or from flight. Attacks prey with fast stoops. Sometimes it is a longer strugle until the snake is dead.

Amazing design of the reverse of the coin, with black Rhodium plating, high relief to provide a contrast effect that can see the coins look change as the position of the light source moves. Each of the animals, one of which is placed on each half of the Yin-Yang symbol, is done in a Tribal tattoo style and the final result is extremely effective. The coin obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Elizabeth II the face value – “5 Dollars” and the year of issue – “2016”.
