2020 1 oz Australia Wedge Tailed Eagle .9999 Silver Coin BU
The Seventh Issue of a Historic Series
In 2014, John Mercanti and the Perth Mint made numismatic history with the introduction of the Wedge Tailed Eagle Series. That was the first time that a former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint partnered with a foreign mint on a coin. That partnership produced what immediately became a favorite issue among collectors. 2020 sees the 5th unique design of this unique and popular series.
- SEVENTH ISSUE IN THE WEDGE TAILED EAGLE SERIES – 2020 is the seventh issue in this extraordinarily popular series.
- 99.99% Fine Silver -- Each 2020 Wedge Tailed Eagle coin is struck from one ounce of 99.99% fine silver at the Perth Mint, which is represented by a "P" mint mark on the right side of the reverse. The Perth Mint is revered by collectors throughout the world for its consistency in producing high quality coins.
- AUSTRALIA LEGAL TENDER – Each 2020 Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle is one dollar legal tender in Australia, as noted on the obverse below Jody Clark's portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
- A LIMITED MINTAGE -- only 50,000 pieces worldwide.
The bald eagle has long appeared on American coins, so John Mercanti, who created the eagle design that has appeared on the Silver Eagle since the coin's debut in 1986, was a natural fit to design a coin celebrating Australia's largest bird of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle. Mercanti's skill in design and engraving and the Perth Mint's exceptional production quality combined to bring about this beloved series.
