The second coin in the Endangered and Extinct series is the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, a huge bird that stands one metre tall and has a wingspan roughly twice its height. Separated for thousands of years from its mainland counterparts, it now faces a number of threats, including the loss of suitable habitat. As a result, it is estimated that no more than 130 pairs are successfully breeding each year. Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. Stunning Reverse Design This extraordinary coin portrays a magnificent Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle in colour. The background comprises representations of gum leaves and mountainous terrain. Legal Tender The coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu. The Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2012 year-date appear on the obverse of the coin. Strictly Limited Mintage No more than 5,000 of these coins will be released. Presentation Packaging Each coin is housed in a high gloss wooden case and illustrated shipper. Numbered Certificate of Authenticity A numbered Certificate of Authenticity accompanies each coin.
