Why add this pristine First Day of Issue high relief Piedfort 2022 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2 oz. silver enhanced reverse proof coin to your collection?

The Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series has been annually issued by the Perth Mint since 2014. All wildlife imagery for the series to date has been designed by John Mercanti, the currently retired 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. This 2022 release of the series marks the first time that a double-thick Piedfort style Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin has been combined with a breathtaking enhanced reverse proof finish. Rather than the fully mirrored design of a standard reverse proof, this enhanced reverse proof coin features varied degrees of frosted elements within the mirrored areas, particularly on the eagle's meticulously rendered feathers.

  • This 2022 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle coin is crafted from 2 Troy oz. of .9999 fine silver.
  • A single year of issue design is featured on the 40.90 mm diameter coin.
  • The coin features an exquisite enhanced reverse proof finish.
  • The Piedfort style coin is minted with a sensational high relief design.
  • The perfectly graded coin is accompanied by a ModernCoinMart exclusive designer signed label.
  • The coin is a certified First Day of Issue release.
  • Mintage is limited to just 2,000 pieces.

Dramatic Wedge-Tailed Eagle Portrait

Obverse: Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II is portrayed wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem on the obverse. The monarch's image is surrounded by the inscriptions "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "1 DOLLAR." The right facing effigy was created in 2015 by Jody Clark, an award-winning British sculptor.

Reverse: A Wedge-Tailed Eagle is posed with its beak open to call out a warning on the reverse. The image border is inscribed with "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2022 2 OZ .9999 SILVER" and the Perth Mint mark "P."

Flawless Proof 70

For submission to the grading service within twenty-four hours of release, the coin earned the highly desirable First Day of Issue attribution. The coin is presented in a sonically sealed NGC protective holder with an Australian flag style certification label bearing the signature of John Mercanti. The graded coin will arrive in a Perth Mint presentation case with its original numbered Authenticity Certificate.
