Description

This beautiful silver high relief coin celebrates one of Australia’s most incredible birds of prey, the majestic wedge-tailed 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. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern Papua New Guinea, the bird has an impressive wingspan of up to 2.7 metres.

Struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality

The Perth Mint will issue no more than 2,500 of the Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2019 5oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin.

Designed by John Mercanti, the coin’s superb high relief reverse depicts a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle in flight with wings fully extended and stylised rays of sunlight in the background

The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.

Each coin is housed in a classic grey display case within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
