Featuring the 2016 Australian wedge-tailed Eagle design by American sculptor and engraver, John M. Mercanti.  The wedge-tailed Eagle can be found from sea level areas to alpine regions, though they favour forested land and open country, to rainforests and coastal heaths. They can often be seen perched in trees and on rocks and cliffs, from where they have a clear view of their surroundings, enabling them to defend their territory and identify prey.
