Why buy this High Relief 2018-P $10 Australia 10 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof?
This High Relief Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle will be prized for its beauty and exclusivity for the handful of collectors who get it for years to come. It features the third design in the young series, which is a collaboration between the Perth Mint and former US Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti. The coin bears the former's "P" mint mark, as it was struck there from 10 oz. of .9999 fine silver. This coin is part of a mintage of just 1,000 pieces.
Stunning Eagle Family Design by John Mercanti
The obverse bears Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which has featured on the country's coins for two decades. The aging monarch is depicted in right-side profile wearing a tiara and earrings. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's country, "AUSTRALIA," and face value, "10 DOLLARS."
The reverse image is John Mercanti's third design for this series. A mother eagle leans over, looking lovingly at her nestling, as the protective male hovers above with his wings spread widely. The name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE" joins the coin's date, "2019," weight, "10 OZ," and purity, "9999 SILVER," on the rim.
Impeccable PF70 UC FR with Mercanti Signed Australia Flag Label
The experts at Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) determined that this coin is perfect as seen under 5x magnification, so they awarded it their highest grade, Proof 70. They also certified it First Releases, thus indicating that it was received for grading not more than 30 days after its initial release, and Ultra Cameo, which means that its contrasts between frosted devices and mirrored fields are especially sharp. This information is provided on an exclusive label that bears the Australian flag. The label was signed by John Mercanti.
