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.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 2,000 of the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2022 2oz Silver Enhanced Reverse Proof High Relief Piedfort Coin.

DESIGN

The coin’s high relief reverse portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. Standing proud of the coin’s delicately frosted table, the artistry highlights the bird’s superbly effective eyes with bright finishes throughout the design enhanced with a range of subtle variations. 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.
