2021 PERTH MINT $1.00 Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2021 1oz Silver Enhanced Reverse Proof High Relief Coin
Sculpted for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver, John M. Mercanti, this pure silver coin’s high relief design portraying Australia’s wedge-tailed eagle features our new enhanced reverse proof quality finish.
The subject of outstanding coin artistry since 2014, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey. Observed throughout mainland Australia and the island state of Tasmania, it favours lightly wooded country offering ready access to prey including rabbits, hares, lizards, snakes and other birds.
This 2021 coin’s dramatic image of a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in its talons is struck in high relief on a frosted table. As eagle-eyed collectors will observe, the bright finishes on the bird and snake are enhanced with a range of subtle variations. The result of painstaking surface treatments, the visually appealing style represents a new coin genre from The Perth Mint.
Accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the coin is housed in a display case within a themed, customised shipper.
