2018 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 10oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin

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.
