Bald Eagle
The bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus), American national bird, is the only eagle unique to North America. The bald eagle's scientific name signifies a sea eagle with a white head. At one time, the word "bald" meant "white," not hairless. Bald eagles are found throughout most of North America, from Alaska and Canada to northern Mexico.
The Bald Eagle is an opportunistic feeder which subsists mainly on fish, which it swoops down and snatches from the water with its talons. It builds the largest nest of any North American bird and the largest tree nests ever recorded for any animal species, up to 4 meters (13 ft) deep, 2.5 meters (8.2 ft) wide, and one metric ton (1.1 tons) in weight. Sexual maturity is attained at the age of four to five years.

The reverse image by Canadian artist Claudio D’Angelo features a Bald Eagle, wings extended to their full span, standing on the branch of a pine tree. The eagle is viewed in profile from its left side, the details of its impressive wings and distinctive snowy head and tail rendered in dimensional detail by Royal Canadian Mint engravers and augmented with selective gold plating. In its powerful left claw, the eagle clutches a freshly caught fish. In the background, stylized clouds nod to the extreme heights at which the Bald Eagle prefers to perch and nest.
