   The wildlife of Australia and neighboring territories is full of miracles. We have all heard about koalas and Tasmanian devils, but not many of us know unique bird species of this region. To fill this gap, in 2012, Tuvalu issued a special .999 silver coin dedicated to the Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle. This species is considered endangered since 1999, with an approximate number of 200 pairs left.

  As a country representing the Commonwealth of Nations, Tuvalu always mints Queen Elizabeth II on the obverse. The royal effigy is accompanied by multiple inscriptions denoting the ruler's name and all basic information about the coin: the nominal value, the year and the country of issue, the weight and the quality of silver.

   The reverse side of the coin has a colored image of the eagle itself. One of the reasons why this bird of prey was chosen to represent the wild nature of Oceania is its huge wingspan, the largest one ever encountered among eagles. The colors look very natural, and the relief background matches the composition perfectly well. The inscription denoting the name of the bird completes the overall image of the reverse.

   The limited mintage of this coin is 5.000, and every piece is packed into a black presentation case with soft lining.
