Why purchase this First Day of Issue 2022 Australia 1 oz. Platinum Wedge-Tailed Eagle Enhanced Reverse Proof coin?

A beautiful coin series dedicated to Australia's largest bird of prey was introduced by the Perth Mint in 2014. To date, there have been seven designs for the series, annually changing since 2018, each featuring the artistry of American sculptor John Mercanti, the former 12th U.S. Mint Chief Engraver. This 2022 Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin represents the first release of the series to be minted with an enhanced reverse proof finish on the 1 oz. platinum variety coin. The eagle image, which would traditionally be fully mirrored on a reverse proof, is accented with multiple frosted elements, adding dramatic depth to the design.

  • This 2022 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin is struck from 1 Troy oz. of .9995 fine platinum.
  • The coin features a breathtaking enhanced reverse proof finish.
  • The coin measures 32.60 mm in diameter.
  • The $100 Australian legal tender coin is minted with a single year of issue design.
  • The impeccably graded coin includes a patriotic, designer signed label which is exclusive to ModernCoinMart.
  • The coin was awarded the coveted First Day of Issue designation.
  • Mintage of this numismatic masterpiece is limited to merely 200 pieces.

Magnificent Wedge-Tailed Eagle Portrait

Obverse: On the obverse, a right facing rendition of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "100 DOLLARS." Award-winning British sculptor Jody Clark created this image of the monarch in 2015.

Reverse: A close-up, gorgeously detailed interpretation of a Wedge-Tailed Eagle is depicted on the reverse with its beak opened to emit a call. The image frame contains the inscriptions "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2022 1 OZ 9995 PLATINUM" and the "P" Mint mark of the Perth Mint.
