This beautiful 10oz pure silver coin celebrates one of Australia’s most incredible birds of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle.
These majestic birds are known to soar through the sky for hours on end, frequently reaching altitudes of up to 2,000 metres. In the heat of the day, they make use of hot thermal air currents that drift up from the ground to reach these dizzying heights, while expending little energy.
This superb high relief design features a mother wedge-tailed eagle looking down on a chick. A male bird is portrayed hovering above them with its magnificent wings fully extended. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2018 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
Struck by The Perth Mint for the first time, from a huge 10oz of 99.99% pure silver, this coin has a mintage of only 1,000 coins and is issued as Australian legal tender. The coin is housed in a classic grey display case within an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
