Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2022-P Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle Ultra High Relief Gold and Silver Proof coin set?
The Perth Mint introduced the Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin series in 2014. The coin's varied imagery, which celebrates the majesty of Australia's largest bird of prey, is credited to the former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver, John Mercanti.
Meticulously Detailed 2022 Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design
Obverse: On the obverse, a right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and the coin's denomination. Acclaimed British sculptor Jody Clark created this incredibly lifelike image of the monarch in 2015.
Reverse: The reverse depicts the head of a Wedge-Tailed Eagle as it focuses its predatory gaze to the left. Inscribed "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," the Perth Mint's "P" Mint mark, "2022 1 OZ 9999" and "GOLD" or "SILVER."
Proof 70 Perfection
Each component of this 2022-P Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle Gold and Silver Ultra High Relief Proof coin set was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review within twenty-four hours of release, qualifying for the First Day of Issue attribution. Featuring flawless strikes, pristine surfaces, and exceptional eye appeal, the coins each earned the NGC's highest grade of Proof 70 Ultra Cameo (UC). The coins are sonically sealed in individual NGC protective holders, each accompanied by a ModernCoinMart exclusive Australian flag style certification label signed by designer John Mercanti. The graded coins will arrive in Perth Mint branded display cases, each with its original numbered Authenticity Certificate.
