Australian wedge-tailed eagle
This beautiful silver coin celebrates one of Australia’s most incredible birds of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle. These majestic birds are known to soar through the sky for hours on end, frequently reaching altitudes of up to 2,000 metres. In the heat of the day, they make use of hot thermal air currents that drift up from the ground to reach these dizzying heights, while expending little energy.
Stunning John M. Mercanti design
This superbly detailed design explores the familial relationships of the wedge-tailed eagle. The coin’s reverse depicts a mother looking down on a chick while a male bird hovers above them with its magnificent wings fully extended. The design also includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’, the 2018 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. Each coin is made with an extra-deep blank to accentuate its superbly detailed design in high relief.
Presentation packaging and numbered certificate
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, each coin is housed in a classic display case within a themed shipper.
