Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2023 1oz Silver Bullion Coin



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 impressive wingspan of up to 2.5 metres, it can also be recognised by its powerful legs which are feathered all the way to its feet.
