Look Out! The New 2020 Wedge-Tailed Eagle is Ready to Dive

In 2014, John Mercanti became the first former Chief Engraver from the United States Mint to work with a foreign mint when he helped create the popular Wedge-Tailed Eagle series with Australia’s Perth Mint. Since then, the series has featured multiple new designs by Mercanti, and 2020 is no different.

This year’s one-year-only reverse depicts a close-up of Australia’s largest bird of prey as it prepares to dive for its next meal. Struck in a full ounce of highly pure 99.99% fine silver, this modern-day masterpiece represents the prefect blend of design, precious metal and collector appeal. Plus, each coin available in this offer comes in gorgeous Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition with razor-sharp details as fresh and crisp as the day it left the mint!

Sold out at the mint, the maximum worldwide mintage for this spectacular release was set at just 50,000 – the same as the 2018 & 2019 mintages that are also completely sold out at the mint! And, unless you can afford to travel all the way to Australia, the only place to secure one of these coins, is through GovMint and its marketing partners since we have the worldwide distribution rights outside of Australia!

There’s still time to get on board the international phenomenon that is Australia’s Wedge-Tailed Eagle program. Click one – or several – of these pure silver coins to your collection and soar with the Eagle from Down Under!
