Bald Eagle
The bald eagle is a bird of prey found in North America. A sea eagle, it has two known subspecies and forms a species pair with the white-tailed eagle (Haliaeetus albicilla). Its range includes most of Canada and Alaska, all of the contiguous United States, and northern Mexico. It is found near large bodies of open water with an abundant food supply and old-growth trees for nesting. 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 m (13 ft) deep, 2.5 m (8.2 ft) wide, and 1 metric ton (1.1 short tons) in weight. Sexual maturity is attained at the age of four to five years. Bald eagles are not actually bald; the name derives from an older meaning of the word, “white headed”. The adult is mainly brown with a white head and tail. The sexes are identical in plumage, but females are about 25 percent larger than males. The beak is large and hooked. The plumage of the immature is brown.

Design

The reverse of the coin features the image by Julius Csotonyi evokes a sense of awe and reverence for both the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) and its coastal habitat. The multi-layered design depicts a sunny, summer day along the rocky shoreline, where the engraved evergreen trees reach for the blue-coloured sky overhead. Talons at the ready, a bald eagle swoops low over the shallow water, where translucent blue enamel stands in for the sky’s reflection without obscuring the underwater view. When viewed under a blacklight, the same scene transitions to dusk, as a fiery sunset lights up the sky and casts longer shadows on the water. The obverse of the coin depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the inscriptions: “ELIZABETH II” - the name of the Queen, “CANADA” - the issuing country, “2019” - the year of issue, “D • G • Regina” - Dei Gratia Regina and “20 DOLLARS” - the face value.
