Why add this 2016-P Australia $1 1 oz. Silver Wedge Tailed Eagle |NGC MS70 Early Releases (Exclusive Australia Label) to your collection?
This 2016-P Australia 1 oz. Silver Wedge Tailed Eagle gives you quite literally the perfect opportunity to be among the first to own one of these beautiful coins. Modern Coin Mart is the exclusive dealer of these coins outside of Australia, meaning that you will not find this coin available anywhere else. The man who designed the reverse, John Mercanti, was the 12th US Mint Chief Engraver. He successfully captured the considerable size of the bird by having it dominate the left side of the coin. Perched high up on a tree branch, its head extends nearly to the edge in the upper left, while its tail does the same in the lower left. Making the coin even more unique is that the two primary inscriptions, “AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE” and “2016 1 OZ 999 SILVER,” are both off center, with the former in the upper right and the latter in the lower left along the rim. The famed “P” mint mark, which is that of the Perth Mint, centers the coin at the bottom. The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that his coin is in perfect condition by giving it the grade of MS70, while also designating it to be among the Early Releases.
