Portraying master engraver John M. Mercanti’s seventh impression of the Australian wedge-tailed eagle, this remarkable 5oz silver proof release is struck with a coining technique offering a greater three-dimensional aspect to its design.
The coin’s ultra high relief reverse portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. Standing especially proud of the coin’s table, the artistry highlights the bird’s superbly effective eyes, which allow it to pinpoint prey from a great height, and a large, hooked beak. As well as the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’ and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark, the reverse also includes the coin’s weight, fineness and its 2022 year-date.
