Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern Papua New Guinea, the bird has an impressive wingspan of up to 2.7 metres.

The Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2022 1oz Platinum Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.95% pure platinum and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

No more than 200 of these coins will be released worldwide.


The coin’s reverse portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. With a subtle range of shiny surfaces distinguishing it from the coin’s delicately frosted table, the artistry highlights the bird’s superbly effective eyes, which allow it to pinpoint prey from a great height, and a large, hooked beak. 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.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.


This coin is housed in a deluxe timber display case within a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
