Distinctive eagle
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. With an expansive wingspan of up to 2.5 metres, it has the ability to fly tirelessly for many hours and frequently reaches altitudes of 2,000 metres and beyond on thermal air currents rising from Australia’s sun-baked terrain.


10th anniversary design
The coin portrays a soaring wedge-tailed eagle. The background features geometrically arranged elements that suggest a sunburst. As well as the inscriptions ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’ and ‘10TH ANNIVERSARY’, the reverse includes a ‘P125’ mintmark signifying The Perth Mint’s 125th anniversary in 2024.


Authentication feature
The coin incorporates an authentication feature on the reverse. In the form of a micro-laser engraved letter, it is only detectable under a magnifying glass.


H.M. King Charles III effigy
The coin’s obverse portrays the Dan Thorne effigy of His Majesty King Charles III, and the monetary denomination.
