Why purchase this $1 Australia 2019-P 1 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle?
In 2014, the Perth Mint and former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti came together to create a series that has enamored collectors ever since-the Australia Wedge Tailed Eagle. The first ever collaboration between a U.S. Mint engraver and a foreign mint, the project brought together the genius of one of the numismatic world's most respected designers, John Mercanti, with the execution of one of the world's most highly regarded mints, the Perth Mint. In 2019, this series continues with a new first as it is the first time that the series bears a new design on both the obverse and the reverse. This coin bears the "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint, where it was struck from one ounce of .9999 fine silver. With a mintage of just 50,000 pieces, it may not be around for long.
Striking Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II replaces Ian Rank-Broadley's, which was a fixture of Australian coinage for decades. Clark follows the tradition of rendering the monarch in right-side profile. Her shoulders are open to the holder, and she is wearing earrings, a necklace, and her Royal Diamond Diadem, which she also wore at her coronation. Rim inscriptions read, "ELIZABETH II" and "AUSTRALIA 2019."
On John Mercanti's reverse, an eagle swoops down against a dynamic backdrop, which enhances the design's suggestion of motion. The eagle looks entirely focused and has its talons stretched forward, indicating that the attack is imminent. This design is encircled by a rim frame in which there are two sets of inscriptions, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE" and "2019 1 OZ 9999 SILVER."
Stunning GEM Unc with Flag Core and Mercanti Signed Label
John Mercanti hand signed the label on which Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin is in GEM Uncirculated (Gem Unc) condition. The coin comes set in a holder that looks like the flag of the issuing nation, Australia.
