Why order this $1 Australia 2019-P 1 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle?
The Perth Mint issued the first Silver Wedge Tailed Eagle in 2014, and it immediately became a favorite among collectors. The series marked the first ever collaboration of a US Mint engraver with a foreign mint, and the results have been astounding. In 2019, the coin not only bears a new reverse design but also a new obverse, adding yet another level of intrigue. Part of a mintage of just 50,000 pieces and now sold out at the Mint, this coin was struck from one ounce of .9999 fine silver and bears the iconic "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint on the reverse. This piece will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated (Gem BU) condition.
Stunning Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
The coin's new obverse design has already appeared on British coinage prior to 2019. Now, it will appear on Australian issues. The new design, which is the creation of Jody Clark, depicts Queen Elizabeth II in right-side profile wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem. That is the same crown that she wore at her coronation. She also dons earrings and a necklace, and her shoulders are open to the holder. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed to the left, while "AUSTRALIA 2019" is inscribed to the right.
On John Mercanti's reverse, an eagle swoops down toward its prey against a dynamic background that enhances the representation of motion. The eagle has its wings spread and its talons forward, suggesting that it is just about to snatch up its next meal. Rim inscriptions offer the name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," and the coin's date, weight, and purity, "2019 1 OZ 9999 SILVER."
