A Silver Eagle Proof Made in Collector Heaven
Over the past few decades, the reputations of John Mercanti as an engraver and of the Perth Mint as one of the top mints – if not the very best mint – in the world have been established and solidified. During his time as the U.S. Mint’s 12th Chief Engraver, Mercanti produced more than 100 coin and medal designs for American coinage. At the same time, the Perth Mint has given the world such wonders as its beloved Kookaburra and the iconic Lunar Series. Can you imagine what could be better than a collaborative effort between the two in the first ever Australia-American collaborative coin series?
