Introduced in 2014, the Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Series offers a collaboration between Australia’s Perth Mint and the former Chief Engraver of the United States Mint, John Mercanti. Mr. Mercanti enjoyed a long, storied career at the United States Mint. Among his seminal designs were the heraldic eagle on the American Silver Eagle reverse and the Statue of Liberty design on the obverse of American Platinum Eagles.
The Wedge Tail Eagle Series started in 2014 with designs on the reverse featuring twice before being replaced. As such, the 2014 and 2015 coins had the same reverse design, while the 2016 and 2017 coins had a new, but shared, reverse design. Starting in 2018, Mr. Mercanti created a new image of the Wedge Tail Eagle for each release in the series.
Queen Elizabeth II features on the obverse side of 2022 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coins. This effigy of the Queen was created for the Royal Mint in 2015 by Jody Clark and features Her Majesty’s portrait in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown.
In the reverse design of the new 2022 1 oz Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coin, the Perth Mint features a close-up view of the head of the wedge tail eagle. In this design, the massive skull of the predator is featured with its large, powerful beak open and its steely gaze fixed on something in the distance.
These 2022 1 oz Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins are packaged individually in flips, by multiples of 20 in protective tubes, and by multiples of 100 in boxes. The typical box holds 5 tubes of 20 coins each.
