Why purchase this flawless 2022-P Australian Ultra High Relief Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1 oz. Gold Proof coin?
The Perth Mint introduced the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series in 2014. The gorgeous renditions of Australia's largest bird of prey represent examples of the artistic skill of American sculptor John Mercanti, the U.S. Mint's former 12th Chief Engraver. Since 2018, the series has been minted with single year of issue imagery; in earlier releases, imagery was changed every two years.
Spectacular Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design
Obverse: A portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, in a regal, right facing pose, is centered on the obverse. Inscriptions include "ELIZABETH II," "AUSTRALIA" and "100 DOLLARS." The initials "JC" credit award-winning British sculptor Jody Clark for the effigy, which was designed in 2015.
Reverse: A close-up view of a Wedge-Tailed Eagle is depicted on the reverse with its beak opened to call out. The image frame contains the inscriptions "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2022 1 OZ 9999 GOLD" and the "P" Mint mark.
