Why order this $200 Australia 2019-P 2 oz High Relief Gold Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof?
In 2014, the Perth Mint partnered with John Mercanti, a former U.S Mint engraver, on the Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series for the first ever collaboration between a U.S Mint engraver and a foreign mint. Now the series, which fast became a favorite among collectors, marks its fifth anniversary with a stunning new design. This 2 oz Gold High Relief Proof is especially desirable given its low mintage of just 250 pieces. Each one was struck from 2 oz of .9999 fine gold and bears the iconic "P" mint mark of the Perth Mint.
Exquisite Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
Adding a third country to the mix, British Royal Mint designer Jody Clark created the obverse design. It features Queen Elizabeth Ii facing right with her shoulders open to the holder. She wears earrings and a necklace in addition to her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her name, "ELIZABETH II," joins the coin's country, "AUSTRALIA," and face value, "200 DOLLARS," on the rim.
A new wedge-tailed eagle design by John Mercanti dominates the reverse. The 'action shot' depicts the bird of prey swooping down as it prepares to attack its next meal. Its wings are spread wide to control its descent, while its claws stretch forward toward its victim. The name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," is inscribed along the rim, as are the coin's date, "2019," and metal content, "2 OZ 9999 GOLD."
Impeccable PF70 UC FR Box with COA and Mercanti Signed Flag Label
