Majestic, Exclusive & Stunningly Rare!
An extremely exclusive tribute to a renowned Australian species, the second release in the sold out ‘Extinct and Endangered’ series pays tribute to one of the most distinctive birds of prey – the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle.
Spectacularly powerful, forcefully independent and the ruler of the sky, the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle is one of the most extraordinary creatures found within open plains, forests and mountains of Tasmania. Classified as endangered by both the Commonwealth and Tasmanian Governments, the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle faces the brutal realities of extinction. With an estimated population of 1,500 with only 130 pairs capable of breeding, fierce efforts are being put into place to maintain this majestic creature in our skies.
Struck to Proof quality from .999 fine silver, the full-colour obverse portrays this remarkable animal surrounded by the rustic terrain of the Tasmanian Highlands. Superbly crafted from The Perth Mint’s highest minting standards, this 40mm Proof is housed within a glossy ‘birds-eye’ wood grain presentation case and accompanying numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
A truly spectacular second release, this official Australian legal tender coin is restricted to a tiny mintage of just 5,000. Available for purchase online, head on over to Downies.com!
