One of the reasons for the The Perth Mint’s annual Wedge Tailed Eagle range’s popularity is always the new depiction of the powerful predator, created by US Mint Designer, John Mercanti. And this year’s design, featuring an Eagle swooping down on a startled serpent, is no different! However, in 2021, the mint has added a new production technique to its Eagle range.., Defined as REVERSE Proof, instead of the main motif appearing in a frosted finish, the Eagle is bright and shiny! The background, conversely, is frosted and matte. Not satisfied there, The Perth Mint has also used its well-known high-relief style!
The results are jaw-droppingly beautiful.
