2018 Australia $15 1/10-oz Gold Wedge Tailed Eagle NGC MS70 First Releases
The Historic John Mercanti and Perth Mint Collaboration Continues!
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 designed a coin struck by another official world mint. Now in its fifth year, the Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle series is still going strong with this 2018 tenth-ounce gold masterpiece!
Not only does 2018 mark the fifth year this ground-breaking series has been issued, it also represents the third Mercanti-designed Wedge-Tailed Eagle reverse! In 2014 and 2015, the series featured Mercanti's vision of an eagle in flight, ready to land. The next two years displayed a perched eagle with a stoic and majestic gaze. Now, for 2018, the time is due for another new creation – one that, along with all designs to follow, will be struck for one year and one year only! GovMint.com is proud to present the latest addition to this acclaimed series, featuring not just one but an entire FAMILY of exceptional eagles!
