Australia’s largest bird of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle, has been portrayed for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver John M. Mercanti in a series of outstanding designs since 2014. Observed across the entire continent, wedge-tailed eagles can be distinguished by their distinctive wedge-shaped tails and fully feathered legs. The large birds favour lightly wooded country where they can hunt for prey such as rabbits, hares, lizards and snakes.
Struck from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, this coin portrays John M. Mercanti’s sixth artistic impression of a wedge-tailed eagle. The design depicts the bird in full flight while gripping a snake in its talons. As well as the coin’s weight, fineness and 2021 year-date, the reverse also incorporates The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
