King of the sky
The subject of master coin engraver John M. Mercanti’s outstanding artistry since 2014, the wedge-tailed eagle can be observed throughout mainland Australia and in the island state of Tasmania. It favours lightly wooded country offering ready access to prey including rabbits, hares, lizards and snakes.
The coin’s impressively detailed artistry portrays a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in it's talons. Unlike a traditional raised relief coin, its design is incused – meaning it is pressed below the surface of the coin by the die. The reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Deluxe display case
