Why does this High Relief Enhanced Reverse Proof 2021-P Australian 1 oz. Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin deserve a place in your collection?
This 2021 dated high relief release of the popular Silver Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series represents a first for the Perth Mint series. The coin is the Mint's first Wedge-Tailed Eagle to be struck with a spectacular enhanced reverse proof finish, which features multiple levels of polished and frosted effects upon the design elements, contrasted against a traditional frosted background. The 2021 release again showcases the artistic virtuosity of John Mercanti, the retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.
Breathtaking Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design
Obverse: Sculptor Jody Clark of Great Britain's Royal Mint designed the obverse, right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II in 2015. Inscribed "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR."
Reverse: The 2021 design illustrates the continuing saga of the majestic predator on the hunt, which was begun with the 2020 design. The reverse depicts a Wedge-Tailed Eagle in flight, just after securing its prey, a snake that appears to be hissing in protest. Inscriptions include "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2021 1 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."
Flawless Proof 70 Ultra Cameo
This 2021-P Australian High Relief Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle Enhanced Reverse Proof coin was submitted to the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) for review.

The perfectly struck silver dollar is sonically sealed in a NGC protective holder with an Australian flag themed certification label confirming its First Day of Issue status, and adorned with the signature of John Mercanti. The graded coin is presented in a Perth Mint display case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
