Inspired by famous animal photographer Tim Flach, the 2019 edition of this series is dedicated to the Philippine eagle. This majestic predator makes its home in the Philippine rainforest. Hardly visible from the Ground its kingdom is up in the treetops at heights reaching 50 m (164 feet) and can easily cover an area of 50m2 (19.30 mile2). This species was discovered in 1896 and its extraordinary wide wings allow to easily maneuver through the jungle trees. Unfortunately this magnificent creature is listed as one of the twelve most endagered species with a current population of only 200-400 individuals.
The three-dimensional smartminting© relief combined with a concave shape generates the impression of an outstanding beak. A glossy finish of the eagle eyes are a highlight of this partially colored coin and will give you a thrill once you look at it. This 1 oz silver coin has a diameter of 38.61 mm. It is limited to 999 pieces and features a proof finish.
