Story

Bird of prey

Launched in 2014, the Wedge-tailed Eagle series celebrates Australia’s largest bird of prey. Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the magnificent raptor can fly tirelessly for many hours, reaching altitudes of 2,000 metres and beyond on thermal air currents rising from Australia’s sun-baked terrain.

Powerful design

Standing proud of the coin’s table, the ultra high relief artistry accentuates the potent predator’s piercing eyes and powerful hooked beak. Also included on the reverse is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
