Depicting master engraver John M. Mercanti’s seventh Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle design for The Perth Mint, this exceptionally detailed 1oz 'enhanced reverse proof’ platinum coin showcases a range of subtle finish variations.
The Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle 2022 1oz Platinum Enhanced Reverse Proof Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.95% pure platinum and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.
The coin’s reverse portrays the head of a wedge-tailed eagle. With a subtle range of shiny surfaces distinguishing it from the coin’s delicately frosted table, the artistry highlights the bird’s superbly effective eyes, which allow it to pinpoint prey from a great height, 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.
A variety of surface treatments have been applied to specific elements of the coin’s reverse design to create the impressive enhanced reverse proof finish.
This coin is housed in a deluxe timber display case within a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
