Clearly one of the best silver coins that The Perth Mint issues each year, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle continues to shine amongst a sea of amazing Australian native animal designs. Our nation's largest Bird of Prey, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle makes for an impressive sight in every way, and especially on a silver coin designed by John Mercanti - the very same man that created the iconic American Eagle silver bullion coin, that was minted continually for 30 years!
Similar in style to the Mint's well-known high relief process, with a concave field, the one discerning feature of this particular Wedge-Tailed Eagle is, of course the incuse nature! Rather than High Relief in 3D up out of the coin, this Eagle features deep relief INTO the coin! This superb minting process is featured here, on a one ounce, silver Eagle, for the first time ever.
Equal parts beautiful and amazing.
