Distinctive eagle

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. With an expansive wingspan of up to 2.5 metres, it can also be recognised from its long, powerful legs which are feathered all the way to its feet.

Incused design

The coin portrays an incused representation of a wedge-tailed eagle standing on a branch with outstretched wings. 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 2023 year-date.
