The Perth Mint will issue no more than 199 of the 2016 Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 5oz Gold Proof High Relief Coin.

The coin’s reverse depicts an impressive Wedge-tailed Eagle perching on a tree branch.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

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.
