2017 $1 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle High Relief 1oz Silver Proof Coin

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 New Guinea, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle has a wingspan of up to 2.7 metres, and displays a long, wedge-shaped tail and feathered legs. 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. The Wedge-Tailed Eagle can be found from sea level areas to alpine regions, though they favour forested land and open country, to rainforests and coastal heaths. They can be often seen perched in trees and on rocks and cliffs from where they have a clear view of their surroundings, enabling them to defend their territory and identifying prey.

The 2017 Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proof High Relief Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver to proof quality, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. 

The coin’s reverse features an impressive Wedge-Tailed Eagle perched on a tree branch.

The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2017 year-date and The Perth Mint‘s ‘P’ Mintmark.

The coin’s reverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. Each coin is housed in a grey presentation case with a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
