Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2018 1kg Gold Proof Coin

This spectacular 1 kilo gold coin features Australia’s most majestic bird of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle. 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.

Key features:

  • Proof quality 99.9% pure gold
  • First wedge-tailed eagle in 1 kilo gold
  • Masterful John M. Mercanti design
Mintage Extremely limited - 15
