The history of Canadian Silver coins
The first Canadian coins domestically produced by the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) were Silver fifty-cent pieces with the effigy of King Edward VIII. Silver bullion coins would come later, but the first Silver dollar from the RCM was produced in 1935, celebrating the Silver Jubilee of King George V. The Birds of Prey Bald Eagle Silver coin features artwork from Canadian artist Emily Damstra. All the Silver coins in the Birds of Prey series, which debuted in February 2014, feature the work of Emily Damstra, who has been producing acclaimed science and nature illustrations since 2000.

Add focus to your collection of Silver coins.
When you buy Silver coins or other Precious Metal coins, how do you determine which Silver coins or series to commit to? Some people buy Silver bullion coins or world coins based solely on raw Silver content, but if you are also interested in numismatics, or collectibles, there is any number of ways you can choose a coins series to start with. Some people buy series like the Birds of Prey Bald Silver Eagle coin and the other three coins in the Birds of Prey series, based on personal interest, beauty of the coin or limited release mintages. Other collectors focus on countries, buying all Canadian coins or other world coins. Some collectors of Silver coins focus on denominations or buying coins from the year they were born.
Understand how the design of your themed Silver coins became a reality.
When designing Silver coins, there are many steps before the final finished product is minted. First, when designing Canadian coins, the Royal Canadian Mint (RCM) must select a well-researched, relevant and meaningful theme, often conducting public opinion polls to help make the decision. Once the theme for the Silver bullion coin is chosen, the RCM commissions artists to submit ideas and designs, providing them with information, guidelines, concepts and coin specifications. The Birds of Prey Bald Eagle Silver coin and the rest of the Birds of Prey Silver coin series received the go-ahead from the Canadian government, which makes the final decision on coin designs. Designs on Silver coins and other numismatic and circulation coins must be aesthetically pleasing but also practical because they have to be reproducible on metal blanks and accurately depict the subject matter on a limited surface.
