Australia’s 2020 Wedge-Tailed Eagle Is Coming In Hot!

In 2014, John Mercanti and the Perth Mint made numismatic history with the introduction of the Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series. It was the very first time that a former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint partnered with a foreign mint to create a legal-tender coin. Since then, Mercanti’s skill in design and engraving combined with the Perth Mint’s exceptional production quality has given flight to what has since become a beloved series the world over.

Close-Up View On 2020’s One-Year-Only Design

The Mercanti-Perth Mint partnership continues in 2020 with the release of a new one-year-only design that is sure to appeal to collectors. This 2020 release presents Mercanti’s fifth design of the series. This one-year-only reverse displays a close-up of the wedge-tailed eagle as it swoops in on its prey. The design pays particular attention to the detail in the eagle’s face and talons, displaying its grim determination in the midst of the hunt. Struck in fantastic high relief, this gorgeous coin measures 65.6 mm in diameter and features a magnificent design that celebrates Australia's largest bird of prey — a design that could have originated only through the brilliant talents of John Mercanti.

Magnificent High-Grade, Low-Mintage Proof

Each coin begins as a hand-selected ten-ounce planchet of highly pure 99.99% fine silver. Then, the artisans at the Perth Mint strike each coin as only they can. When you turn this coin over in your hand and marvel at its beauty, you’ll understand why the Perth Mint’s reputation for innovation and producing coins of superior quality is unsurpassed.

Your 2020 Wedge-Tailed Eagle Ten-Ounce Silver Proof has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means your perfectly-graded proof will have ZERO imperfections – showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended! In addition, NGC has certified that your proof is a First Day of Issue (FDI) coin, a designation that means it was received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository by the release date or on the business day within 24 hours of the official release date.

Signed by the Legendary John Mercanti
