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 2017 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2oz Gold High Relief Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure gold, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. No more than 150 of these coins will be released worldwide.
 
 
DESIGN  
 
The coin’s reverse depicts an impressive Wedge-tailed Eagle perching 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 obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
