2016 is the 3rd year of issue for the popular Australian Wedge Tailed Eagle coins. However, the 2016 high relief silver Wedge Tailed Eagle has a new design. It was created by John Mercanti, designer of the popular American Silver Eagle reverse, and shows a wedge tailed eagle in a perched position. The opposite side shows a portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. The high relief of this coin makes the design even more stunning. Mintage for this version is limited, with only 20,000 of these 2016 high relief silver Wedge Tailed Eagle coins being struck. Each one is made of .999 fine silver and weighs 1 Troy oz. The face value can be found on the obverse, while the weight and purity inscriptions are shown on the reverse.
