Why make this flawless First Day of Production 2021-P Australian Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle bullion coin a part of your collection?
The Wedge-Tailed Eagle series was introduced by the Perth Mint in 2014, featuring gorgeous wildlife imagery by John Mercanti, American sculptor and retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. In the early years of the series, a new eagle image was featured every other year. Rapid popularity of the Mercanti-designed series prompted the Mint to offer single year issue designs for the series since 2018.
Beautifully Detailed Wedge-Tailed Eagle with Captured Prey
Obverse: The effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is centered on the obverse, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR." The royal portrait was created by acclaimed British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: The reverse design is a follow-up to the image issued in 2020, in which a Wedge-Tailed Eagle was reaching for unseen prey with talons extended. The 2021 design depicts the successful predator, with its gaze focused down on the wriggling snake in its grip. Inscriptions include "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2021 1 OZ .9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."
