In celebration of the American Bald Eagle being removed from the endangered species list, a special commemorative coin program was enacted. The 2008 Bald Eagle commemorative program was created to generate funds for the not-for-profit American Eagle Foundation of Tennessee. There are three denominations in the commemorative program. In addition to the gold $5 discussed here there was also a clad half dollar, and a silver dollar coin both discussed elsewhere.
