First-Ever Australia Silver Eagle!

The U.S. Mint has been striking Silver Eagles ever since 1986. Now, for the first time ever, Australia is striking its own Silver Eagle. Not only that, but the eagles on both Silver Dollars are designed by John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint. This is the first time in coinage history that a U.S. Mint Chief Engraver has designed a coin for another world mint! The 2014 Australia Silver Dollar features a wedge-tailed eagle, its claws outstretched, about to land on a tree branch. You’ll agree, it’s a spectacular, lively design. Each Australia Silver Eagle is struck to a dazzling Proof condition, and shows Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II and the One Dollar Australia legal-tender denomination. In addition, the proof’s one-ounce weight and 99.9% silver purity are struck into the coin’s surface, right below the eagle. We welcome this important striking into the family of Silver Eagles, and you’ll heartily welcome it into your collection. But you need to hurry, only 5,000 were minted, and this small number could be gobbled up by our customers fast.

    Such a stunning design. The sculpted eagle jumps off the surface of the coin. Leave it to the Perth Mint to strike a coin that demonstrates the true talent of John Mercanti. (Posted on 2/4/14)

    Absoutey Georgeous. This 40mm Proof has a much larger canvas than the smaller 31mm High Relief Proof Eagle and is much easier to see the detail. The High Relief is beautiful as well. You won't be disappointed!!! (Posted on 1/24/14)
