2017 Australia 1-oz Gold Wedge Tailed Eagle NGC High Relief Reverse PF70- Mercanti Signed
The FIRST EVER Reverse Proof High Relief Gold Wedge-Tailed Eagle!
A few years ago, we brought together John Mercanti and the Perth Mint to collaborate on a new coin series. Little did we know that we'd help start an international sensation! This match of the most prolific designer in United States Mint history along with the heralded Australian mint produced the first-ever Wedge-Tailed Eagle in 2014-- the first time a U.S. Mint chief engraver has designed a coin struck by another official world mint. Now in its fourth year, the Australia Wedge-Tail Eagle series is still surprising collectors with this one-ounce high relief Gold Wedge-Tailed Eagle, minted with a reverse proof finish for the first time EVER!
- BREATHTAKING DETAILED ARTISTRY-- Each reverse proof features John Mercanti's design of Australia's largest eagle, perched on a lone tree branch in a majestic and vigilant pose.
- STUNNING HIGH RELIEF WITH A REVERSE PROOF FINISH-- Each coin begins as a hand-selected one-ounce planchet of highly-pure 99.99% fine gold. Then, using polished dies and multiple strikes, the artisans at the Perth Mint use state-of-the-art technology to create brilliantly mirrored details that rise sharply from a frosted field -- an expertly crafted reversal of traditional proof finishes.
- LEGAL TENDER-- Each reverse proof is legal tender 100 dollars Australian. All the details are engraved on the obverse along with Ian Rank-Broadley's profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin's gold content, the year 2017 and the "P" mintmark join the wedge-tailed eagle on the reverse.
- CERTIFIED FLAWLESS -- Your reverse proof will come certified Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70 UC) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your perfectly-2017 Gold Wedge-Tailed Eagle High Relief Reverse Proof will have ZERO imperfections -- showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! Your reverse proof will also be sonically sealed in an acrylic case, giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail. In addition, all of your reverse proof's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case’s label, which will also come hand-signed by the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti! Finally, you'll receive all of your reverse proof's original Perth Mint packaging, including a crafted wood presentation case, numbered certificate of authenticity and story card.
Unless you live in Australia, your only source for this phenomenal gold coin is GovMint.com. The entire Wedge-Tailed Eagle series has been a global hit since 2014. And, with this first-ever entry, we're expecting these reverse proofs to soar out of our vaults.
