The Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series' Third Design by John Mercanti

An incredibly detailed family of eagles is illustrated on the reverse; the male depicted in protective flight above his mate and young in a grassy field below. The image border bears the inscriptions "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2018 5 OZ .9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."

The obverse depicts Ian Rank-Broadley's rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, surrounded by the legend "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS."
