The Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin series was introduced in 2014. The Perth Mint paired with John Mercanti, the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, to create this wonderful series. John Mercanti is known for overseeing countless major coin design initiatives for the U.S. Mint. He retired in 2010 as the 12th Chief Engraver in mint history after working at the U.S. Mint for four different decades.
All of the 2018 5 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coins in this JM Bullion listing come with proper certification and additional designations. The PF70 grade means that these coins are perfect specimens, exactly as the mint and the engraver intended. When viewed under 5x magnitude, these coins contain no post-production imperfections and retain their full, original mint luster.
Additionally, the UCAM label indicates that both sides of the 2018 coin feature a deeply-mirrored, clear background field with a heavily frosted design. With this unique visual design, it appears that the image is floating above the coin’s surface.
On the observe of the 2018 5 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin is the profile of Queen Elizabeth II. A family of Australian wedge tail eagles is featured on the reverse of the coin, along with the year 2018 and the coin’s silver content. The family of eagles is a unique design, showing a mother eagle looking down at a baby eaglet, as the father is shown swooping over.
The 2018 5 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coins are produced as high-relief by the Perth Mint. When the coin is being made, the blanks are struck several times under intense pressure. This creates deeper fields and a greater relief for the designs.
The Perth Mint has set a limited mintage of the 2018 5 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver coin to only 2,500. Please contact JM Bullion if you have any questions by calling us at 800-276-6508. You can also chat with us live online or email us directly.
