2022 Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Bullion Coin

• 99.99% pure silver
• Australian legal tender
• Seventh design by John M. Mercanti

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. With an impressive wingspan of up to 2.5 metres, it can also be recognised by its powerful legs which are feathered all the way to its feet.
The Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2022 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. This coin has a mintage of 50,000.

DESIGN
Sculpted for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver, John M. Mercanti, the coin’s reverse portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. Reflecting its formidable hunting skills, the artistry highlights the bird’s large and superbly effective eyes 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.
The coin’s obverse features the Jody Clark effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

ABOUT THE DESIGNER
This is the seventh wedge-tailed eagle design for The Perth Mint by renowned American sculptor and engraver, John M. Mercanti. The 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint, John Mercanti has produced more coin and medal designs than any other employee in the organisation’s history.

AUTHENTICATION FEATURE
Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the design. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.
