This absolutely spectacular 5oz gold proof coin is struck in brilliant high relief and features Australia’s most majestic bird of prey, the Wedge-tailed Eagle.
The Wedge-tailed Eagle can be found from sea level areas to alpine regions, though they favour forested land and open country, to rainforests and coastal heaths.
They can often be seen perched in trees and on rocks and cliffs, from where they have a clear view of their surroundings, enabling them to defend their territory and identify prey.
The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 5oz of 99.99% pure gold, and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The coin’s spectacular reverse features an impressive Wedge-tailed Eagle perching on a tree branch. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2017 year-date and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark. The obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
This coin is housed in a prestigious wooden display case within a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
Only 75 fine examples of this spectacular 5oz high relief coin will be issued worldwide!
