Stunning Wedge Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
The obverse image is Ian Rank-Broadley's right-side portrait of British monarch Queen Elizabeth II. The image has been in use for nearly two decades. It shows the Queen with a tiara atop her curly hair. Rim inscriptions encircling the effigy include "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA," and "15 DOLLARS."
The reverse image was the work of John Mercanti, the former Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. It features a wedge-tailed eagle perched upon a tree branch. Rim inscriptions include the coin's weight and purity, as well as its name, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE."
