Iconic 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 soar at altitudes of 2,000 metres and beyond on thermal air currents rising from Australia’s sun-baked terrain.

Incused design

Traditionally, coins are struck with raised relief. Unusually, this coin features the image of a wedge-tailed eagle with outstretched wings that is pressed into the coin’s surface. The design includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGE’, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the coin’s weight, purity, and year-date.
