Commencing with the Tasmanian Tiger and continuing with the Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, this outstanding series will feature a number of extinct or threatened animal species in Australia.
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.
