Sixth and final coin in the Royal Australian Mint's "Birds of Australia" $10 Sterling Silver Piedfort Series.
The Wedge-tailed Eagle is often seen in pairs soaring high on motionless wings. When it sights its prey - such as rabbits, carrion, marsupials, and birds - it attacks with an amazing burst of speed. It builds a very large nest (sometimes measuring two and a half metres across) high in an isolated tree so the sitting bird has a clear view. The fourth largest eagle in the world, the Wedge-tail gracefully represents Australia's harsh and powerful beauty.
