This extremely limited release showcases another fantastic design by master of avian coinage, John M. Mercanti. This bi-metallic half gold, half platinum coin is struck in our remarkable proof quality.
The third edition from The Perth Mint, this intriguing 1.5 oz coin combines a centerpiece containing 3/4 oz of fine gold and an outer ring made from 3/4 oz of pure platinum. Bonded together during the striking process, their fusion results in a brilliant bi-metal release of spell-binding beauty – the perfect canvas on which to showcase American coin designer extraordinaire, John M. Mercanti.
The coin’s reverse depicts a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle swooping on its prey in the midst of a hunt. The design also includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’, the 2020 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.
The Wedge Tailed Eagle delivers in a deluxe wooden display case within a themed shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
