The Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series Returns for 2017!
A few years ago, we brought together John Mercanti and the Perth Mint to collaborate on a new coin series. Little did we know then that we'd help lay the groundwork for an international sensation! Honestly, we shouldn't be surprised. The combination of the most prolific designer in United States Mint history along with the heralded, state-of-the-art mint was a perfect match. In 2014, the two collaborated on the creation of the first-ever Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle -- the first time a U.S. Mint chief engraver has designed a coin to be struck by another official world mint.
Now in its fourth year, the Australia Wedge-Tail Eagle Silver Dollar, like the partnership between Mercanti and the Perth Mint, is still going strong! The reverse of the coin features Australia's largest eagle perched on a tree branch, while the obverse shows a stately portrait of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Each legal tender one dollar Australian coin is struck in 99.9% pure silver.
And all that is just the tip of the feather! Your 2017 Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle also comes with these additional features:
- Your coin will be graded Mint State-69 (MS69) by Numismatic Guaranty Corporation (NGC), a distinction that means your almost-flawless Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle will showcase an impressive full strike and indistinguishable imperfections -- well above and beyond the quality of the vast majority of coins in the series. In fact, many collectors prefer the MS69 grade since it certifies recognized collector status for just a small premium above ungraded coins.
- Your Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle will be sonically sealed in an acrylic case with white display core -- giving you the best in protection while granting clear sightlines into every beautiful detail.
- All of your coin's unique characteristics will be described in detail on the acrylic case's label, which will also come hand-signed by the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint John Mercanti!
The Perth Mint has established an open mintage for the 2017 Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle. Once 2017 wraps up, production will end and the mintage will be set. So, why wait? Take the opportunity now to score these gorgeous coins for your collection from their exclusive worldwide distributor outside of Australia.
