Why does this pristine 1 oz. silver Ultra High Relief First Day of Issue 2022-P Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof coin belong in your collection?
The Perth Mint launched the series celebrating the Wedge-Tailed Eagle in 2014. The series gained quick popularity for its astoundingly beautiful imagery of Australia's largest bird of prey. Each eagle image of the series is credited to prolific American medallic sculptor John Mercanti, the currently retired 12th Chief engraver of the U.S. Mint.
Stunning Wedge-Tailed Eagle Imagery
Obverse: The obverse is graced with an image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, encircled by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR." The effigy of the monarch was designed in 2015 by renowned British sculptor Jody Clark.
Reverse: The reverse features a meticulously detailed Wedge-Tailed Eagle in portrait style, as it opens its beak to unleash a warning call. Inscribed "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2022 1 OZ .9999 SILVER" and the Perth Mint mark "P."
