The bird pictured on the American silver dollar was a real eagle named
Peter. From 1830 to 1836, people who worked at the United States Mint
adopted him to use as model for the drawings. When he died after getting his
wing injured in the coining press, they stuffed him. He is still on display
in the lobby of the mint.
