Story

Hunting eagle design

The subject of John M. Mercanti’s outstanding coin artistry since 2014, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. Observed throughout mainland Australia and the island state of Tasmania, it favours lightly wooded country offering ready access to prey including rabbits, hares, lizards, snakes and other birds.

The coin portrays a dramatic image of a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in its talons. The bird’s shiny high relief impression stands proud of the delicately frosted, concave surface of the coin table. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Presentation packaging

Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, the coin is housed in a timber display case within a themed shipper.
