Spectacular Australian bird
The subject of master coin engraver John M. Mercanti’s outstanding artistry since 2014, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. Observed throughout the mainland and in the island state of Tasmania, it favours lightly wooded country offering ready access to prey including rabbits, hares, lizards and snakes.
Ultra high relief design
Portraying the powerful predator with a snake in its talons, the coin is struck to our latest ultra high relief specification - a technique offering an even greater three-dimensional aspect to the design. As a reverse proof, the polished bird motif stands especially proud of the coin’s delicately frosted, concave-shaped table. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark also appears on the reverse.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic grey leatherette case and an illustrated shipper.
