Why order this 2020-P $1 Australia 1 oz Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle?
History was made in 2014 when a US Mint engraver teamed up with a foreign mint for the first time ever. John Mercanti and the Perth Mint came together on the first ever Wedge-Tailed Eagle issue. This series has been wildly popular among collectors. Now in 2020, the Perth Mint is releasing a new issue with a new Mercanti design. This coin was struck from 1 oz of .9999 fine silver at the Perth Mint. That mint's "P" mint mark appears on the reverse. Part of a mintage of 50,000 pieces, which is now sold out at the Perth Mint, this coin will arrive in GEM Brilliant Uncirculated condition.
Striking Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
A right-side portrait of Australian head of state Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse. Shown down to her shoulders by Jody Clark of the British Royal Mint,she is depicted with earrings and a necklace. Her shoulders are open to the holder, and her Royal Diamond Diadem sits on her head. Here name, "ELIZABETH II," joins the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA," and the coin's face value, "1 DOLLAR," on the rim frame.
John Mercanti's reverse design shows a wedge-tailed eagle preparing to land on a new perch. Its head reaches forward and its wings are spread to its side as it opens its talons preparing to latch onto a branch. The closeup look at the bird offers extraordinary detail. The name of the coin, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," is inscribed on the rim frame, as are the coin's date, "2020," weight, "1 OZ," and purity, "9999 SILVER."
