Why purchase this $8 Australian 2017 5 oz High Relief Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle Reverse Proof?

This 5 oz Silver 2017 $8 Australian High Relief Wedge-Tailed Eagle Reverse Proof is an ideal choice for bird lovers, especially those who have a particular affinity for eagles. It bears the iconic "P" Mint mark of the Perth Mint, where it was struck from .9999 fine silver. This is the first time that Australia has issued a reverse proof edition of this relatively new but extremely popular series. The coin is part of a limited mintage of just 2,000 pieces, so this flawless coin is a rare find.

Stunning Wedge-Tailed Eagle design by John Mercanti

Queen Elizabeth II's portrait by Ian Rank-Broadley serves as the design on the obverse. Rank-Broadley shows the monarch wearing a tiara. Inscriptions along the rim include the name of the woman depicted, "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "8 DOLLARS."

On the reverse, a majestic wedge-tailed eagle stands perched on a tree branch. The proud figure is shown from the left but has its head turned to the right side of the coin in a pose that enables the holder to appreciate every aspect of its beauty.

Flawless Proof 70

The Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) awarded this coin their highest grade, Proof 70. That grade is only given to coins that lack even a single imperfection that can be seen under 5x magnification.

Don't miss your chance to own this Reverse Proof 2017 $8 Australian High Relief 5 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle.
