Australian wedge-tailed eagle

This beautiful silver coin celebrates the incredible wedge-tailed eagle. The wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern New Guinea, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle has a wingspan of up to 2.7 metres, and displays a long, wedge-shaped tail and feathered legs.

Masterful John M. Mercanti design

A master of avian design, John M. Mercanti takes a touching look at the life-cycle of Australia’s largest bird of prey for his third design in this majestic series.  The exceptional coin portrays a mother Wedge-tailed Eagle tenderly looking down on her chick. A protective male bird is portrayed hovering above them with its magnificent wings fully extended.
