Wedge-tailed Eagle reaches new high in 2018

Topics [ silver bullion coins Australian Wedge Tailed Eagle silver ]

In his third design for The Perth Mint’s Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle coin series, renowned engraver John M. Mercanti explores the relationships between a chick and its parents for a beautifully composed new portrayal.

Unrivalled in his experience of depicting large birds of prey, the former Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint captures the intimate bond between mother and eaglet while a protective male hovers in the sky overhead.

Seen stooping towards her needy offspring in a stance that conveys natural concern and responsibility, the female wedge-tailed eagle makes a wonderful centrepiece to the design with meticulously observed plumage.

Her airborne mate, with his powerful wings fully extended, shows off the distinctive wedge-shaped tail from which the species takes its name.

This stunning design, which will be struck on a range of forthcoming releases from The Perth Mint, can be seen for the first time on our Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Bullion Coin for 2018.

Aimed at investors with an eye for classic design and a superior quality finish, the exceptional series has gained an international following which will likely be keen to take advantage of another highly memorable John Mercanti study.

Struck from 99.99% pure silver, issued as Australian legal tender and restricted to a worldwide mintage of just 50,000, the superb new coin represents an exceptional opportunity for anyone in search of high quality silver investments.
