Information about effigy: Eagle

Eagle

The bald eagle was chosen June 20, 1782 as the emblem of the United States of America, because of its long life, great strength and majestic looks, and also because it was then believed to exist only on this continent.

The eagle appears in flight on some early dollar coins, while on other coins it is standing.

On most American coins though it is shown in its heraldic form.
