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 bird’s characteristic tail is visible even when gliding thousands of metres above the ground. Able to fly tirelessly for hours on end, the wedge-tailed eagle frequently reaches altitudes of more than 2,000 metres and has been recorded soaring as high as 6,800 metres above the ground.

Coin details
Designed by John Mercanti, the coin’s superb high relief reverse depicts a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle in flight with wings fully extended and stylised rays of sunlight in the background. The coin’s high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike of the die.
