Why purchase this 1 oz Silver 2021-P $1 Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle?
Although much younger than other Perth Mint series, such as the Koala and the Kookaburra, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle has quickly become a collector favorite. The series marks the first ever collaboration between a U.S. Mint designer, John Mercanti, and a foreign mint, the Perth Mint. Over the course of its relatively brief history, the series has featured stunning designs by Mercanti, who brings the remarkable bird to life with each new image.
Breathtaking Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design by John Mercanti
Obverse: A right-side portrait of Queen Elizabeth II that was designed by Jody Clark graces the obverse. The monarch has her shoulders open to the holder and wears her Royal Diamond Diadem. Her effigy is encircled by a rim frame that bears inscriptions of her name, "ELIZABETH II," the name of the issuing country, "AUSTRALIA," and the coin's face value, "1 DOLLAR."
Reverse: John Mercanti designed the reverse on which a wedge-tailed eagle carries its next meal, a snake. The design follows last year's edition, in which the eagle was swooping down to snatch its prey. Along the rim is a frame that bears inscriptions of the coin's name, "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," date, "2021," and weight and purity, "1 OZ 9999 SILVER." John Mercanti is one of the most prolific designer of medals and coins in the history of the United States. His three and a half-plus decades with the U.S. Mint included time as the institution's twelfth Chief Engraver.
Impeccable MS70 with White Core Holder and Mercanti Signed Flag Label
Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) certified that this coin appears perfect under 5x magnification by awarding it their highest grade, Mint State 70. That grade comes on an Australian flag label that was hand signed by John Mercanti. The coin comes set in a white core holder.
