Why purchase this pristine 2021-P Australian Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle High Relief coin with an Enhanced Reverse Proof finish?
The 2021 dated release of the Perth Mint's Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series features the sixth rendition of the majestic bird to be designed by John Mercanti, the former 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. This high relief example of the series represents a first for the Mint, an Enhanced Reverse Proof finish. This finish differs from that of a traditional reverse proof, as the mirrored design elements are treated with aesthetically placed frosted accents, which lend breathtaking depth and dimension to the imagery.
Stunning Bird of Prey Design
Obverse: Sculptor Jody Clark's effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse. The portrait is surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR." Mr. Clark is notably the first employee of Great Britain's Royal Mint to craft a definitive monarch coinage portrait in more than one hundred years.
Reverse: The 2020 design illustrated the Wedge-Tailed Eagle preparing to grasp its chosen prey. The 2021 reverse design depicts the eagle in the next moment, as the triumphant hunter focuses its gaze on the struggling snake in its grip. Inscriptions include "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2021 1 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."
