2021 Australia 2 Ounce Wedge Tailed Eagle Ultra High Relief Reverse Proof Silver Coin

$210.00 CAD

Sculpted for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver John M. Mercanti, this 2oz pure silver piedfort coin portrays Australia’s wedge-tailed eagle in ultra high relief. An evolution of the high relief concept, the new coining technique offers an even greater three-dimensional aspect to the design.

The subject of John M. Mercanti’s outstanding coin artistry since 2014, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. Observed throughout mainland Australia and the island state of Tasmania, it favours lightly wooded country offering ready access to prey including rabbits, hares, lizards, snakes and other birds.

Coin Design:

The coin portrays a dramatic image of a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in its talons. Representing a first from The Perth Mint, the bird’s shiny ultra high relief artistry stands especially proud of the coin’s delicately frosted, concave table. Also included on the reverse is The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a classic display case within a themed shipper.
