Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle Flies In As The Second In The Endangered And Extinct Silver Coin Series

A spectacular legal tender tribute to the majestic, endangered Tasmanian Wedge- Tailed Eagle, this outstanding new Perth Mint-struck coin has put the market in a flap. With soaring demand ensuring that a sell-out of the mintage is imminent, this may well be your last chance to swoop down on the 2012 $1 Tasmanian Wedgetailed Eagle Silver Proof.

Tuvalu 2012 $1 Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proof

One of the largest birds of prey in the world, instantly recognised by the shape of the tail and its sheer size, the Tasmanian Wedgetailed Eagle is a truly magnificent creature. Critically endangered, with a population believed to be less than 1,500 birds, the noble beauty and fierce independence of Australia’s biggest raptor is captured perfectly in full-colour upon the imposing frame of this sparkling 40mm precious metal Proof. Indeed, the eyecatching beauty of the design alone would have ensured the success of this new release – even without the ready-made audience created by the first coin in the Extinct & Endangered Series.

One of the hottest releases of the year, the 5,000-coin mintage of the 2011 $1 Tasmanian Tiger 1oz Silver Proof was wiped out in record time. With the 2012 $1 Tasmanian Wedge-tailed Eagle Silver Proof a coin of such obvious, innate quality, and its predecessor so popular, it was always likely that the mintage of 5,000 would be inadequate to meet demand – and so it has proved. With a sell-out close at hand – just weeks after release! – you must not miss this final opportunity to secure this unique precious metal Proof at the Official Issue Price!
