This majestic Wedge-tailed Eagle silver coin, featuring artistry prepared exclusively for The Perth Mint by renowned US designer John M. Mercanti, showcases our new ultra high relief strike, a coining technique that offers an even greater three-dimensional aspect to the coin’s reverse design. Sublimely crafted, the spectacular bird stands especially proud of the coin’s delicately frosted, concave table.

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern Papua New Guinea, the bird has an impressive wingspan of up to 2.7 metres.

Coin design
Sculpted for The Perth Mint by the renowned US engraver, John M. Mercanti, the coin’s ultra high relief reverse depicts a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in its talons. As well as the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ Mintmark, the reverse also includes the coin’s weight, fineness and its 2021 year-date.

Presentation
This is the sixth wedge-tailed eagle design for The Perth Mint by renowned sculptor and engraver John M. Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. Mercanti also created the reverse design of the American Silver Eagle bullion coin and has produced more coin and medal designs than any other employee in the history of the U.S. Mint.
