One of the Numismatic World’s Oldest Symbols

Winged Victory, also called Nike or Victoria, first appeared on ancient Greek and Roman coinage around 510 B.C. One of the earliest images used on coins, Victory is often depicted with large wings and a laurel wreath of victory. Just as she has for millennia, she continues to appear on coins to this day — including on this 2021-dated Winged Victory coin from Australia’s acclaimed Perth Mint.

The epic design of this coin is enough to cause any coin fanatic’s mouth to water, but the fact that this Australian coin was designed by American John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S Mint, makes, makes it instantly collectible. Plus, it was struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% Australian silver in stunning high relief and features a deep, concave field upon the surface of the coin for maximum contrast with the devices.

Mercanti’s design depicts Nike in a classic Art Deco style. Honoring an unseen hero with a victory laurel in the palm of her right hand, Nike’s muscular figure is enveloped in a beautifully symmetrical representation of feathered wings. Victory’s massive wings serve as Mercanti’s tribute to his idol, famed sculptor and coin design Augustus Saint-Gaudens.

The 2021 Australia One-Ounce Silver Winged Victory High Relief Proof was expertly crafted by The Perth Mint from hand-selected planchets, polished dies and multiple strikes to produce beautifully frosted details rising over mirror-like fields. In fact, each coin available here has been graded by the Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC) as being in flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo (PF70UC) condition, a distinction that means these perfectly-graded proofs have ZERO imperfections — showing all features and fields exactly as the engraver and mint intended.

In addition, NGC certified that these proofs are First Releases (FR) coins, a designation that means they were received by NGC or an NGC-approved depository within the first 30 days of their release. Plus, each coin here will come sonically sealed in an acrylic holder with an exclusive Australian Flag label.
