Why buy this $1 Australia 2019-P 1 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle?
The budding Australian Silver Wedge Tailed eagle series enters its sixth year with this 2019 edition. The historic series was the first in which a US Mint engraver collaborated with a foreign mint on a project. That engraver is John Mercanti, who once served as Chief Engraver of the US Mint. This series has grown in popularity thanks to Mercanti's stunning designs, the Perth Mint's outstanding execution, and the relatively low mintages for a bullion series. Just 50,000 pieces will be minted in this edition, each one from one ounce of .9999 fine silver. This coin bears a "P" mint mark on the reverse.
Stunning Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
For the first time since its debut, the Wedge Tailed Eagle has a new obverse design. Ian Rank-Broadley's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II, which dominated Australian coinage for decades, has been replaced by a new portrait of the same subject by Jody Clark. Clark shows the aging monarch wearing her Royal Diamond Diadem, the same crown that she wore at her coronation, earrings, and a necklace. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," is inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's country, "AUSTRALIA," and date, "2019."
The reverse also features a new design, John Mercanti's fourth in the series. A wedge-tailed eagle swoops downward, preparing to snatch its prey. Its talons are stretched forward, indicating that it is about to make the catch. The dynamic background enhances the suggestion of movement. The name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," is inscribed along the rim, as are the date, "2019," and the coin's weight and purity, "1 OZ .9999 SILVER."
Flawless MS70 FR with Flag Core and Mercanti Signed Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) set this coin in a core that looks like the Australian flag, allowing it to easily stand out in any collection. The grading company also certified that the coin is in Mint State 70 (MS70) condition and First Releases (FR). MS70 coins must be perfect as seen under 5x magnification, and First Releases (FR) indicates that NGC received this piece no more than 30 days after it was released from the mint. The label on which that information is provided was signed by John Mercanti.
