Packaging Your coin is individually encapsulated and presented in a Royal Canadian Mint-branded clamshell with a black beauty box. 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. Bald eagles build the largest nests-these can average about 1 metre tall, though larger nests have been reported. It's not clear whether the male or female selects the site, but they tend to nest in tall trees that provide them with a commanding view and easy flight access. Eaglets hatch after a 35-day incubation period and remain in the nest for 10-12 weeks. During the first weeks, the parents will shield the young from the elements and carry food back to the nest. Young eagles develop their flight and hunting skills at their own pace, and they're largely independent after the second month. Member of Royal Canadian Numismatic Association.
