This pure gold collectable coin features a portrait of the bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) in fine detail. Dominated by a massive, sharply curved yellow beak, the adult eagle's distinctive head is covered to the neck with long, smooth white feathers. The arrangement of the feathers above its large golden eyes gives the adult eagle a frowning appearance that is perhaps a factor in the bird's symbolic associations with power. It's gifted vision empowers the eagle to spot relatively small prey underwater or in grassy plains while soaring hundreds of metres in the air despite these prey animals' natural camouflage.
