This 90% silver tribute was struck to celebrate the recovery and restoration of the American Bald Eagle and to mark the 35th anniversary of the Endangered Species Act of 1973. Shown on the obverse is a majestic American eagle soaring over the landscape. The reverse features a replica of the first Great Seal of the United States. Almost two and a half times as many proof specimens were produced in comparison to Brilliant Uncirculated issues.
