Story

New high for eagle

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the Australian wedge-tailed eagle is one of the world’s largest birds of prey. 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.

Outstanding avian artistry

Featuring renowned sculptor John M. Mercanti’s seventh wedge-tailed eagle design, the coin’s dramatic image of the avian predator is struck in high relief on a frosted table. As eagle-eyed collectors will observe, the bright finishes on the bird’s head are enhanced with a range of subtle variations - the result of painstaking surface treatments by our coin craftsmen and women.

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.
