Detailed Information:

The American Bald Eagle was a bird that was found in abundance in North America. The majestic bird of prey is one of the most powerful birds in the sky. They can reach to an altitude of almost 10,000 feet and therefore is known as the King of the Birds. Their strong build, powerful vision, capability to reach great heights in the sky, their majestic look, their hunting capability, their caring and nurturing nature automatically qualify them to be a leader and therefore USA chose this powerful bird as its national symbol. The qualities of these birds aptly represent this powerful nation.

The bald eagle design was adopted by the Congress on June 20, 1782, and since then the design has appeared in official documents, flags, currency, public buildings, and other items related to the Government of USA.

Although the bald eagle became the American icon, it was pushed to the brink of extinction by 1960s due to the destruction of its habitat, hunting, poaching, preying on food contaminated with pesticides like DDT, etc. In the 1800’s America housed almost 100,000 nesting bald eagles which by 1960s had dwindled to a meager 400 breeding pairs left in the entire nation, and in 1978, the bald eagle was declared an endangered species. A timely action by providing federal protection to the eagles through the Endangered Species Act of 1973 as well as a banning of DDT in the entire nation led to a remarkable recovery in the count of the nesting bald eagles which reached to almost 10,000 in a few years.

To celebrate the remarkable recovery of the population of bald eagles as well as to commemorate the 35th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act of 1973, the US Mint released three different coins under the 2008 Bald Eagle Commemorative Coin Program. Three different coins were released under this program; a gold coin with a face value of $5, a silver coin with a face value of $1, and a nickel copper clad coin with a face value of half dollar. The designs of each of these versions are different.

The $1 silver coin has a limited mintage of 500,000 coins and is made of 90% silver and 10% copper. Both proof and uncirculated versions are available. The proof versions were all minted at the Philadelphia Mint and bears the “P” mint mark. The obverse features the majestic bald eagle in flight with a scenery of mountain on the background. .” Designed by Joel Iskowitz and sculpted by Don Everhart.

The reverse features the first Great Seal of USA which was used from 1782-1841. Sculpted by Jim Licaretz.
