This extraordinary 1oz silver high relief coin features a fresh new design celebrating Australia’s largest bird of prey from renowned American coin engraver John M. Mercanti.
Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is 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.
The Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2020 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin is struck by The Perth Mint.
No more than 5,000 of these coins will be released worldwide.
Designed by John Mercanti, the coin’s superb high relief reverse depicts a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle swooping on its prey in the midst of a hunt.
The coin is housed in a classic display case with a clear lid. Packaged with an illustrated shipper, each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
