Product Information

 

With a wingspan in excess of two metres, the Wedge-tailed Eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. Easily identified by its long, distinctively shaped tail, the magnificent raptor is seen throughout Australia, from coastal plains to forests and alpine regions.

Incused Reverse Artistry

Portraying the Wedge-tailed Eagle swooping towards its prey, the coin’s reverse impression exemplifies the bird’s savage grace. Depicting its plumage in stunning detail, the high relief portrayal is ‘incused’ (or recessed below the coin table) - an interesting variation sure to fascinate collectors.

As well as the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the reverse includes the coin’s weight and purity, its 2020 year-date and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Magnificent Presentation

This coin is housed in a deluxe timber display case within a beautifully embossed box and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
