CoinSilver Ounce 2021 The Bald Eagle

The Democratic Republic of the Congo normally uses banknotes for circulation, and does not issue coins in the Congolese Franc currency. However, the country has authorised some foreign mints to issue commemorative and bullion coins under its jurisdiction.

Most of them are in standard bullion sizes, including one ounce of silver - such as this coin.

This third issue in the annual World's Wildlife Series is dedicated to the Bald Eagle (Haliaeetus leucocephalus).

The bald eagle is the heraldic bird of the USA, which already indicates its distribution area on the east and west coasts of the USA and in Alaska. Together with the California condor, the bald eagle is one of the largest birds of prey in North America - it reaches a body length of 70 - 90 cm and a wingspan of 1.80 - 2.50 meters. Visually, it is particularly recognisable by its namesake white head and neck. The majestic animal is under species protection in the United States since 1940.
