The Australian Apex Predators coin series will launch in February 2016, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of Taronga Zoo and will feature our most-iconic native predatory animals: the Wedge-tailed eagle, the Dingo, the Tasmanian devil, the Saltwater crocodile, and the Great white shark.

Despite their position of dominance in the animal kingdom, many apex predators are vulnerable and need our support. The series aims to raise over $6,000 for the Taronga Conservation Society who are working to secure a shared future for wildlife and people.

Taronga protects endangered species by operating breeding and recovery programs for vulnerable animals, and by increasing understanding of wildlife through scientific research, and by inspiring community action.

Gina the wedge-tailed eagle (pictured above with Coin designer Elise Martinson and keeper Brendan Host) the star of Taronga’s bird show, has muscular myopathy (weakness in her muscles) and cannot survive in the wild. However, as part of the Conservation Society’s program, she is able to lead a comfortable life, educating and enriching the lives of those who visit her at the zoo.

Australian Gold and Silver Exchange (AGSX) has long been a supporter of a range of charities that undertake vital work to improve the lives of others.
To secure a part of this collection, contact AGSX and pre-order your favourite animal, or the whole series today.
