2008 Bald Eagle Proof Silver Dollar Coin
Title: 2008 Bald Eagle Proof Silver Dollar Coin Certificate
Description: 2008 Bald Eagle Proof Silver Dollar Coin with Certificate Commemorative Coin. America’s strength, freedom, and democracy are all symbolized in the image of a Bald Eagle soaring through our spacious skies. The Bald Eagle’s proud bearing has adorned the Great Seal of the United States since 1782, representing to the world the American values of courage, spirit, and equality.
This national treasure came perilously close to extinction. But years of legal protection, hard work, and vigilance have joined to ensure its survival. Once a rare sight, the Bald Eagle population is now so robust that it no longer needs the protection of the Endangered Species Act, though other protections are still in place.
The obverse of this proof silver dollar coin portrays a mature Bald Eagle soaring in flight, with its majestic wings spread. The reverse of the silver dollar coin features the original rendition of the Great Seal of the United States that was in use from 1782 to 1841.
