Leading up to their breeding season, pairs of wedge-tailed eagles take part in breathtaking aerobatic displays above their territory. Pairs share responsibility for building a nest and the female bird usually lays two eggs. Initially the male does all the hunting but when the chicks are about 30 days old, the female joins her mate to search for food.

Designed by John Mercanti, the coin’s superb high relief reverse depicts a mother wedge-tailed eagle looking down at her young chick. The father 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. The coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

The coin is housed in a classic grey display case within a superbly illustrated shipper, and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
