The Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin is the Perth Mints popular answer to the United States Mints American Silver Eagle Series. It features beautiful imagery on the reverse each year of the Wedge Tail Eagle, the largest bird of prey in Australia known for the visible wedge shape of its tail feathers.
During the first two release years (2014-2015), the Perth Mint used the same design on the reverse side of the coins. Beginning in 2016, Perth Mint introduced a new design on the reverse each year to add value and demand to the already popular series. Investors and collectors alike find themselves drawn to this stunning coin.
On the reverse of the 2018 1 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin is the image of an eagle family. In the distant background youll notice one adult eagle flying back to the nest, with wings spread wide and its talons ready to clutch the branches upon landing. In the foreground, a large adult wedge tail eagle stands in the nest leaning its beak down toward a small hatchling. Engravings on this side include the P mint mark of Perth Mint, the series name of the coin, as well as the year of issue, weight, purity, and metal content.
The obverse of the Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin features the right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth II. Created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley, this is the fourth-generation depiction of Her Majesty and is accompanied by engravings of the Queens name, nation of issue, and face value.
