Story

A head for heights

The wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. With the ability to fly tirelessly for many hours, the majestic bird frequently reaches altitudes of 2,000 metres on thermal air currents over Australia’s sun-baked terrain.

Outstanding avian artistry

The coin’s dramatic artistry portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle, highlighting the top predator’s superbly effective eyes and hooked beak. As well as the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse also includes the coin’s weight, fineness and its 2022 year-date.
