Why purchase this perfectly graded Ultra High Relief 2022-P Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1 oz. silver proof coin?
The Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series has been a product of the Perth Mint since 2014. The Wedge-Tailed Eagle is notably Australia's largest bird of prey, with wingspans averaging more than eight feet across. The imagery dedicated to the predatory winged creature is credited to John Mercanti, acclaimed American sculptor and currently retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint.
