Building on the legacy of the Australian Gold Nugget, Koala, and Kangaroo coins, the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series began in 2014 and helped bolster the mint’s legendary status in the world of coin collectibles and numismatics.
In just five years, it has become one of Perth Mint’s best-selling series, especially with collectors in the United States. And with good reason! Each design in the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series comes courtesy of John Mercanti, 12thChief Engraver of the U.S. Mint and designer of the U.S. Silver Eagle reverse.
The Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series marks the first time in history that a former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver has designed a legal-tender coin series for a foreign world mint. And as you can see, the results are stunning. Mercanti is known as the man who has created more coin and medal designs than any other U.S. Mint engraver in history—and the new 2020 Wedge-Tailed Eagle is surely among his finest works to date.
New, One-Year-Only Design
For 2020’s one-year-only design, Mercanti gives us an incredibly intricate, close-up look at Australia’s largest bird of prey as it prepares to dive for its next meal. It’s as exciting as it is beautiful, especially when struck in High Relief Proof condition!
High Relief Proofs
Minted in Proof condition, these coins feature frosted devices and mirrored fields. Even better, these coins were also struck in High Relief, with concave fields that allow the designs to sit even higher off of the mirrored fields for an extreme level of contrast.
Struck in 99.99% Gold and Silver
What’s better than a coin in High Relief Proof condition? How about one with an impressive level of purity? Each Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof is official Australian legal tender and comes struck in a full ounce of 99.99% gold or silver.
