Story

Preying eagle

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the Australian wedge-tailed eagle has a wingspan of more than 2.5 metres. With the ability to fly tirelessly for many hours, it’s known to reach altitudes of 2,000 metres and beyond on thermal air currents rising from Australia’s sun-baked terrain.

Ultra high relief design

The seventh design prepared by eminent US numismatic sculptor John M. Mercanti portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. Standing especially proud of the coin’s table, the artistry highlights the bird’s superbly effective eyes, which allow it to pinpoint prey from a great height, and a large hooked beak. Also included on the coin’s reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
