2008 Bald Eagle Proof Clad Half Dollar Commemorative Coin with Certificate of AuthenticityAmericas strength, freedom, and democracy are all symbolized in the image of a Bald Eagle soaring through our spacious skies. The Bald Eagles 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 clad half-dollar coin depicts two baby eaglets at about two to three days in age, settled in a nest surrounding an unhatched egg. The reverse features the famous eagle "Challenger" with the American flag in the background. Join the United States Mint in commemorating the majesty of our national symbol and its remarkable restoration to our Nations lands, waterways and skies.
