This is the first ever Proof Piedfort coin minted at The Perth Mint! Piedfort, a traditional numismatic term, literally translates as 'strong foot' - and, what a superb, yet romantic, name for this type of coin!
Struck to the same 40.6mm diameter as the mint's standard Wedge Tailed Eagle 1oz silver proof, the Piedfort is struck from TWO ounces yet is still only 40.6mm in diameter...How? It is double the thickness or, indeed, 'strong footed'!
Limited to a tiny mintage of just 3,000 coins, each of these first-of-a-kind 2oz silver issues is housed in a case with numbered certificate of authenticity.
