Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2023 $75 1.5oz Bi-Metal Proof Gilded Coin Perth Mint


Portraying a wedge-tailed eagle, this 1.5oz numismatic gem demonstrates a rarely used coining technique demonstrating an intricate combination of 3/4oz of pure gold, and 3/4oz of pure silver.

Giant eagle

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. With an impressive 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.

Bi-metal design

The coin incorporates a pure gold centrepiece depicting a wedge-tailed eagle with outstretched wings. Its wingtips, feet, and the branch on which it is perched are gilded in 24 carat gold, enabling the golden artistry to extend into the pure silver border. Also included on the reverse is the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, and the 2023 year-date.

Memorial Obverse

This coin portrays the official Queen Elizabeth II Memorial Obverse, featuring the Jody Clark effigy supplemented with the dates of Her Majesty’s reign – ‘1952 – 2022’.

Presentation packaging
