Australia’s Wedge-Tailed Eagle Series is back in 2023 for a tenth consecutive year with the eighth design from John Mercanti, 12th Chief Engraver of the United States Mint. This year’s design shows Australia’s largest bird of prey in a majestic portrait alighting on a branch as its spreads it massive, long & broad wings. This series from the Perth Mint is a collectors-favorite for its numismatic importance as the first-ever collaboration between a former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver and a foreign world mint.
This rendition continues the series of the Perth Mint’s modern-day masterpieces with a Mercanti design that features an intricately designed image of the Wedge Tailed Eagle. With wings stretching to more than seven-and-a-half feet, Wedge Tail Eagles have one of the longest wingspans of any eagle in the entire world. The detail is so exquisite you can see every feather from the bird’s gigantic wings to its powerful fully feathered legs. The image is truly the prefect blend of design, precious metal, and collector appeal.
