Why add this commemorative 2008 Bald Eagle Half Dollar to your collection?

This 2008 Bald Eagle Half Dollar was one of three coins released as part of the Bald Eagle Commemorative Coin Program in celebration of the recovery of the Bald Eagle species and the 35th Anniversary of the Endangered Species Act. This copper-nickel clad half dollar, with a diameter of 30.61 mm and weight of 11.34g, was struck from a composition of 91.67% copper and 8.33% nickel, with a final reported mintage of 120,180. The coin also represents the first commemorative half dollar to be issued by the U.S. Mint since 2003.

Spectacular Patriotic imagery and details

The obverse depicts two baby eaglets beside an egg in an incredibly detailed nest, designed by Susan Gamble and sculpted by Joseph Menna. Inscribed "LIBERTY," "2008," and "IN GOD WE TRUST."

The reverse, designed by Donna Weaver and sculpted by Charles Vickers, features the bald eagle named Challenger with an American flag waving in the background. Inscriptions include "E PLURIBUS UNUM," "CHALLENGER," "UNITED STATES OF AMERICA," and "HALF DOLLAR." Challenger is a non-releasable Bald Eagle, trained to soar freely in the sky above at major events while the National Anthem is played.

Gorgeous brilliant uncirculated coin

This 2008 Bald Eagle Half Dollar is in beautiful, Brilliant Uncirculated condition. This means that the coin was superbly struck, with design elements in clear, sharp relief and stunning Mint luster.
