Details

Australia’s largest bird of prey, and one of the biggest eagles in the world, the Wedge-Tailed Eagle, is immortalised on this beautiful 1oz silver proof coin. Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The Perth Mint commissioned American sculptor and engraver, John M Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, to create the 2014 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle design.

Each coin’s reverse depicts an impressive Wedge-Tailed Eagle in mid-flight as it prepares to land on a tree branch. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2014 year-date and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965 and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, and the monetary denomination, on the obverse.

The Perth Mint will issue no more than 5,000 of the 2014 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proof Coin.

Each coin is housed in a grey presentation case with a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
