This is the sixth release of the Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle, the third best-selling coin from the Perth Mint. The Wedge Tail Eagle’s sixth release features just the fourth design from John Mercanti in the series. The 2014 debut design was used again in 2015, with a new image used in 2016 and 2017. The 2018 coin featured its own, unique design. Now, the 2019 Silver Wedge Tail Eagle has a new design that will be available only for this release.
All of these 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition and come with individual packaging, tubes of 10 coins, or boxes of 100 coins. This is the first year in the Silver Wedge Tail Eagle series that the coins have both a new reverse and obverse design.
On the obverse of 2019 Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coin is the latest sixth-generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to feature on Australian coins. Based on Jody Clark’s 2015 design for the Royal Mint of England, this portrait captures the Queen in right-profile relief wearing the Royal Diadem crown. Unlike British coins, this new design includes the Queen’s neck and shoulder line visible.
The reverse of 2019 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coins features a new design of the Wedge Tail Eagle species. This year’s design captures this magnificent bird in flight with its wings spread to the maximum span of more than 8 feet as it prepares to swoop down on its prey. The design again comes from John Mercanti, the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint whose design portfolio includes the heraldic eagle of the United States on the American Silver Eagle and the Statue of Liberty on the American Platinum Eagle.
