Why does this exceptionally graded First Day of Issue 2022 Australia 10 oz. Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle high relief enhanced reverse proof coin deserve a place in your collection?
2022 is the ninth year of issue for the Perth Mint's Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series. Each release of the series has featured a breathtaking rendition of Australia's largest bird of prey created by renowned American medallic sculptor John Mercanti, the former 12th U.S. Mint Chief Engraver. This 2022 Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin is struck with an enhanced reverse proof finish, representing a first for the ten ounce silver $10 denomination coin. On an enhanced reverse proof coin, selective aspects of the mirrored design elements are highlighted with varied amounts of frosted textures, lending incredible depth to the overall image.
Gorgeous Wedge-Tailed Eagle Imagery
Obverse: A right facing effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II with the Royal Diamond Diadem upon her head is located on the obverse. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "10 DOLLARS." The portrait of the monarch was designed by renowned British sculptor Jody Clark in 2015.
Reverse: The reverse depicts a Wedge-Tailed Eagle facing left, with its curved razor sharp beak in an open position as if calling out a warning. The image frame contains the inscriptions "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2022 10 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Perth Mint mark "P."
