Sculpted for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver, John M. Mercanti, the dramatic close-up portrait of Australia’s largest bird of prey on this spectacular 2oz silver coin is struck in high relief and features our highly appealing ‘enhanced reverse proof' finish.

Key features:

  • 99.99% pure silver
  • Enhanced reverse proof high relief quality
  • High relief strike
  • Australian legal tender
  • New high for eagle
  • Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the Australian wedge-tailed eagle is one of the world’s largest birds of prey. With the ability to fly tirelessly for many hours, it’s known to reach altitudes of 2,000 metres and beyond on thermal air currents rising from Australia’s sun-baked terrain.

    Outstanding avian artistry

    Featuring renowned sculptor John M. Mercanti’s seventh wedge-tailed eagle design, the coin’s dramatic image of the avian predator is struck in high relief on a frosted table. As eagle-eyed collectors will observe, the bright finishes on the bird’s head are enhanced with a range of subtle variations - the result of painstaking surface treatments by our coin craftsmen and women.

    As well as the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse also includes the coin’s weight, fineness and its 2022 year-date.
