2023 Canada $30 Vantage Point - Bald Eagle by Robert Bateman Fine Silver (No Tax)

A symbol of strength and resilience in the wild, the bald eagle is a regal sight to behold on this 2 oz. 99.99% fine silver coin. The coin’s reverse presents an engraved take on Vantage Point – Bald Eagle, an original work of art by world-renowned wildlife artist Robert Bateman. Its depiction of the bald eagle elicits feelings of awe, even in this quiet moment, as the majestic bird sits on its moss-covered perch and defiantly faces into the wind.

One of Canada’s most recognized and honoured artists, Robert Bateman is an unflagging proponent of wildlife conservation and education. His photo-realistic art reflects his deep love of nature and his commitment to its preservation.

The artist has long been an advocate of wildlife education and learning initiatives that deepen one’s connection with nature, such as those carried out by the Bateman Foundation (batemanfoundation.org). Based in Victoria, B.C., the Foundation oversees the Bateman Gallery, home to the largest permanent collection of original works by Robert Bateman. The Batemans have also donated millions of dollars’ worth of artwork and limited-edition prints throughout the years to help fund conservation efforts across Canada.

The coin’s reverse is an engraved adaptation of Vantage Point – Bald Eagle, an original work of art by Canadian wildlife artist Robert Bateman. It features a side view of a bald eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus) perched on the moss-covered roots of an uprooted tree. The coin’s luminous silver surface stands in for the original painting’s misty grey sky, where the text “CANADA 2023” appears, while the artist’s signature is engraved beneath a denomination of “30 DOLLARS”. The obverse features a nature-themed pattern and the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II by Susanna Blunt. The obverse also bears a special marking that includes four pearls symbolizing the four effigies that have graced Canadian coins and the double date of her reign.
