The Coin Company is proud to present Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2021 10oz Silver Reverse Proof Ultra High Relief Coin, produced by the Perth Mint.
Depicting master engraver John M. Mercanti’s sixth Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle design for The Perth Mint, this exceptional 10oz silver coin showcases our ultra high relief strike, a coining technique that offers an even greater three-dimensional aspect to the coin’s reverse design. Sublimely crafted, the spectacular bird stands especially proud of the coin’s delicately frosted, concave reverse table.
Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern Papua New Guinea, the bird has an impressive wingspan of up to 2.7 metres.
The Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the coin’s monetary denomination and year-date appear on the obverse.
Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2021 10oz Silver Reverse Proof Ultra High Relief Coin has a limited mintage of 500 coins.
