Featuring the 2016 Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle design by American sculptor and engraver, John M. Mercanti, this 1oz silver coin is struck in brilliant high relief.
This majestic bird is known to soar through the sky for hours on end, frequently reaching altitudes of up to 2,000 metres. In the heat of the day, the eagle makes use of hot thermal air currents that drift up from the ground to reach these dizzying heights, whilst expending little energy.
Each coin is housed in a classic Perth Mint display case with a themed shipper and is also accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
