Every year, the Perth Mint releases a series of coins in celebration of the Wedge-Tailed Eagle, the largest bird of prey in Australia and one of the largest of the world’s eagle species. With a wingspan up to two and a half meters and the distinctive plumed tail that inspires its name, the eagle is an iconic symbol of Australian wildlife and one of the most majestic raptors on Earth. The series celebrating it is a perennial favorite on the collectors’ market, something that has only become more true since the introduction of a half-gram coin to the lineup in 2015. These half-gram coins are designed to provide an affordable starting point for new collectors, and have won fame in that role ever since their introduction. The team at Provident Metals is delighted to offer the 2015 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle 1/2 Gram Gold Coin for online purchase.

Highlights:

  • Delivered in an elegant assay card that confirms the coin’s serial number, weight, and purity, and comes with the added protection of an acrylic seal!
  • The first half-gram coin in this series, struck by the Perth Mint in 2015!
  • Contains 1/2 gram (0.016 Troy oz) of 0.9999 pure gold.
  • Carries a two dollar face value as Australian legal tender.
  • Obverse features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II.
  • Reverse side features a soaring eagle.

The 2015 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Gold Coin ships in a protective acrylic seal, packaged in an assay card that confirms its weight, purity, serial number, and other key details. It features the original-mint luster and frosted details of a Brilliant Uncirculated finish, and Provident Metals fully insures each shipment against any chance of loss or damage.

Obverse

The so-called “Fourth Portrait,” a classic Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of the late monarch Queen Elizabeth II, dominates the coin’s obverse field, confirming the coin’s status as Australian legal tender. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “QUEEN ELIZABETH II,” “AUSTRALIA 2015,” and “2 DOLLARS.”

Reverse

A wedge-tailed eagle with outstretched talons takes flight on the coin’s reverse field, accompanied by the Pert Mint’s “P” mint mark and the lettering “0.5 GRAM 9999 GOLD.”

History

The Wedge Tail Eagle series is a tribute to the technical abilities of the world-renowned Perth Mint. Double-struck using polished and hand-finished dies, the coins in this series are internationally famous for their level of detail and quality, and have been popular with collectors for years. Even the miniature half-gram entries that were first issued in 2015 are known for their dazzling visual appeal, and have acquired a solid audience among entry-level and experienced collectors alike.
