The Majestic American Bald Eagle for #PirateSunday

in Silver Gold Stackerslast year (edited)

▶️ Watch on 3Speak


The bald eagle has been used to represent strength, liberty, freedom, and our proud nation, and was officially declared the National Emblem of the United States by the Second Continental Congress in 1782.

The American Bald Eagle is an iconic symbol of America, and one of my favorite designs in silver and gold.

Majestic Eagle U.S. Bicentennial 1776-1976 Silver Bar

One Troy Oz .999 Fine by the Madison Mint, a rare, vintage bar commemorating the 200th year of Independence.

A lovely vintage silver bar minted in 1976, serialized #004734. It is high-relief like, wth the Eagle that appears ready for flight.

😍 #ilikeitalot!😍

The reverse of the bar is stamped with the years 1879-1979 and "200 Years of Independence" with 50 stars around the edge of the circle which deeply sunk into the bar. It is counter-relief, or cavo-rilievo, where the form is cut into the field or background rather than rising from it, as in the front of this silver bar.

It is actually my second Majestic Eagle U.S. Bicentennial silver bar. The first one I have shown below is serialized 002588 ( 8 is my lucky number!), and 1976 is indeed a very special year.

The eagle design on the Majestic Eagle U.S. Bicentennial silver bar by Madison Mint is an adaptation of the original Majestic Eagle design of Adolf Weinman's Walking Liberty Half Dollar reverse.

Eagles are a common sight over my home. I often see the mated pair lazily circle high in the sky and I can't seem to get a good shot of them with my Smartphone. I haven't located their nest but know its general location.
They're awesome when I see them.
However, the local crows hate them and often send up an raucous alarm when the Eagles get too close to any of Crows nests. And justifiably so as I witnessed the Eagles raid a crow's nest and the resulting crow storm that resulted.
Nature at it's dramatic.
Always, with Love 🤗 💕 🌸

I was asked if these Eagles are really bald, LOL! The bald eagle is the largest eagle type and can be found ONLY in North America in Canada, Alaska and lower 48 states. Their nest is HUGE, and so they need strong trees for nests because they mate for life. return to the same nest, and keeps building the nest! Look for those big tall trees and maybe you will find an Eagles nest! I am so glad that it is no longer in the list of endangered birds.
I wish I could go somewhere open right now and enjoy nature. Alas, our skies are smokey. My yard and car, covered with ash.
Have a beautiful Sunday, my lovely sis @kerrislravenhill. Take care🥰🌺🤙 and xoxo 🤗💕💋!

Awesome silver bar @silversaver888, I believe I have one of these bars....somewhere LOL!!! Now I will need to look and see!!
Did you know that this was not the first choice for our National bird..
I believe.... I need to recheck this, that Benjamin Franklin wanted the turkey!!🤔
Take care my friend!!😍😍😀

For sure you have this one! need another Apmex box for my 1 oz pressed bars. Since 2019, Apmex sends orders inside a different kind of box. I like the black Apmex box before!
You are correct, Benjamin Franklin wanted the Turkey ... hehehe... imagine our great seal and emblem to be a turkey... hilarious!
Have a great evening, my friend @silvetop, and take care 🥰🌺🤙

Isn't that so strange about Benjamin Franklin, I believe this was because the Bald Eagle hunts dead/dying prey primarily.....
Yes you are going to have a collection of Apmex pressed bars to be proud of @silversaver888!!!
Look at the fun we can have stacking my friend!!!
Have a nice night my friend, I think for once I will get to bed early....take care!!!!😍😍😀

The Bald Eagle is indeed a majestic bird and does remind you of what this country stands for. That is a beautiful bar; especially the high relief side of the eagle and also the counter relief reverse side.

Up here in the Northwest, the Bald Eagle is almost a daily sight. I never tire of seeing one in flight and if I happen to get lucky enough to be near one on the ground, well lets just say it is totally breath taking! They arouse a sense of awe every time.

Thanks for sharing your Bicentennial Eagle Bar, sis! Have a wonderful week!
🤗🤗💕🌸

Have you seen an eagles nest? I have not in person. They say that it can be H-U-GE-, because the eagles mate for life, and they come back to the same nest and they keep building and building that nest. And they live 30 years and others up to 50! Incredibl! How I wish my Yorkies will live that long. I am preparing myself to someday lose My Sweetpea... she is 15 years old in December.
Have a great evening, my sweet sis @elizabthbit. Tale care, and lots of hugs and love 🥰🌺🤙

I have seen one at a distance. They are huge! I know what you mean about our pets. It's hard to let go when the time comes. You would think it would get easier the more times it happens, but it does not!

Take care my sweet sis!🤗🤗💕😘🌸

Could you imagine if they followed Benjamin Franklin's suggestion and made the Turkey the National Emblem of the United States?
