- The Perth Mint honors Australia's largest bird of prey with this coin series introduced in 2014, dedicated to the Wedge-Tailed Eagle. The reverse image of this third release of the series was designed by John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, and creator of the familiar American Silver Eagle reverse.
- This 2016-P Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof is struck from 5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver, has a diameter of 50.60mm, a weight of 155.67g, and a maximum mintage of 5,000 coins. The coin's concave surfaces and thickness of 12.5mm result in a dramatic high relief strike.
- Gorgeous high relief design: A beautifully detailed Wedge-Tailed Eagle balanced on a tree branch is featured on the reverse. Inscriptions; AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, 2016 5 OZ .999 SILVER and the Mint mark surround the image. The profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II adorns the obverse, designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, inscribed ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, and 8 DOLLARS.
