This photo was of the Bass Harbor Lighthouse with the addition of an eagle flying along the coastline toward his roost at moonrise. The photographer was paid with a one-ounce 1998 Proof coin and $200 for use of his artwork, as noted in a US Mint letter dated July 1, 1998. The photographer was Ed Elvidge, a retired photographer living on Mount Desert Island and Acadia National Park for 35 years, interpreting the nature of the island through his lens. The image on this coin offers a vantage point just offshore, looking up the granite bluff to the lighthouse.
