2020 Australia Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagles

In 2014, ModernCoinMart introduced former U.S Chief Engraver John Mercanti, who produced over 100 coin and medal designs for the U.S Mint, to the renowned Perth Mint, and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series was born to the delight of collectors around the world. Here at ModernCoinMart, we’ve been proud to offer it exclusively (outside of Australia) ever since! The annual series features the largest bird of Prey in the Australian continent, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle in a variety of dramatic scenes. The titular bird has an average wingspan that is an impressive 8.2 feet and takes its name from the wedge-shape of its tail.

Continuing the 2019 imagery of the Wedge-Tailed Eagle soaring in the sky about to snatch his prey, the 2020 design resumes the action, as the large bird closes in on its next meal, talons outstretched in anticipation. This 1 oz. Brilliant Uncirculated coin boasts a .9999 fine silver purity and a legal tender of $1 AUD.

A Brief History of the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series

This renowned series began in 2014 with a collaboration between former U.S Mint Chief Engraver John Mercanti and the Perth Mint. This union marked the first time a foreign mint and former U.S Mint employee worked together to create a numismatic release. Several stunning reverse designs featuring the fearsome bird of prey have been featured in the series all designed by legendary designer John Mercanti. Each year, the given design, which is often, but not always used for two consecutive years, appears on a variety of numismatic releases including the standard 1 oz. Silver uncirculated coin as well as a 1 oz. High Relief Silver Proof in addition to gold variations which include a 1 oz. and 1/10th oz. gold coins.
