2020 $1 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver High Relief Proof Coin


The Wedge-Tailed Eagle is one of the world’s largest eagles, and Australia’s largest bird of prey. The immense power and great beauty of this majestic creature has been captured perfectly in this official Australian legal tender coin.

A stunning tribute to the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle, the design was created by John M. Mercanti – the 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint. Mercanti’s inspired design depicts this noble creature soaring down upon its prey, and is brought to life through the Perth Mint’s High Relief Proof standard. Each coin is struck on concave surfaces to ensure the best possible flow of precious 99.99% silver, and the Wedge-Tailed Eagle motif is defined by great depth and detail.

With just 5,000 coins struck, and with the US market sure to snap up a majority of that meagre limited edition, now is the time to swoop!
