2019 Australia $150 1.5-oz Gold & Platinum Bi-Metal Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof NGC PF70UC First Releases w/Mercanti Signature
A New Wedge-Tailed Eagle Design Has Landed for 2019!
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.
The Mercanti-Perth Mint partnership continues in 2019 with the release of a new one-year-only design struck as a gold and platinum bi-metal Proof that is sure to have particular appeal to collectors. For this year’s Wedge-Tailed Eagle design, Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver at the U.S. Mint, has given us a portrait of an eagle in flight descending against a backdrop of sun rays, its talons extended as if closing in on its prey. This gorgeous coin measures 36.5 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!
This unique bi-metal coin was struck by the artisans at the Perth Mint as only they can. Each coin features an inner core of 3/4-ounce of highly pure 99.99% gold surrounded by an outer ring of 3/4-ounce of 99.95% platinum. When you turn this coin over in your hand and marvel at its beauty and contrast between the deep gold color offset by the shimmering platinum, you’ll understand why the Perth Mint’s reputation for innovation and producing coins of superior quality is unsurpassed.
