Why purchase this perfectly graded Piedfort style ultra high relief 2021-P Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2 oz. silver reverse proof coin?
The Perth Mint has issued the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series since 2014. In 2021, the Mint has introduced a variety to the series featuring dramatic ultra high relief design elements on a double thick Piedfort style coin for the first time ever! Imagery dedicated to the Wedge-Tailed Eagle for the entirety of the series to date has been created by sculptor John Mercanti, the currently retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.
Exciting 2021 Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design
Obverse: The likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is located on the obverse, surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "2 DOLLARS." The Queen's portrait was crafted by award-winning British Royal Mint sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: The reverse image continues the Wedge-Tailed Eagle story begun in 2020, which depicted the fierce predator focused on unseen prey, with its claws extended. The 2021 image illustrates the magnificent winged creature triumphant, with a tight grip on a struggling snake. Inscribed "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2021 2 OZ .9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P."
