2020 1 oz Silver Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof High-Relief

This stunning new high-relief proof release by Perth Mint, in collaboration with former US Mint Chief Engraver, John Mercanti, is spectacular. The Wedge-Tailed Eagle series first launched with the 2014 release and was received with universal acclaim. Each new design that has released since has only increased the series popularity. This 2020 1 oz Silver Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proof High-Relief edition is the fifth Wedge-Tailed Eagle design to be released and it is magnificent!

Magnificent Hunter ‑ Proof High-Relief

As a legal tender release by Australia, the obverse displays 6th generation effigy of Queen Elizabeth II to be displayed on Australian coins, produced by Jody Clark. Inscriptions within the wide rim-band include “ELIZABETH II . AUSTRALIA . 1 DOLLAR.”

As with the BU release, the reverse of this High-Relief Proof edition features a large, close-up view of a Wedged-Tailed Eagle, the largest bird of prey found in Australia. The eagle is descending with his deadly talons fully extended and thrust forward. His piercing eyes are focused upon his prey below. The eagle is positioned descending from the upper left rim and almost filling the entire field with its powerful wings spread wide. Within the narrow rim-band are included the inscriptions “AUSTRALIAN WEDGED-TAILED EAGLE . 2020 1 oz 9999 SILVER”

Produced with a smaller diameter of 32.6 mm, this high-profile proof edition is distinguished from the BU offering not only by size but also by its overall quality. Each coin’s planchets were hand-selected and struck with polished dies. The high relief reverse and obverse are minted on concave surfaces to ensure the optimum flow of metal is achieved by the strike. Each coin was struck with multiple die strikes. The resulting coins include both frosted and brilliant mirror-like fields.

This incredibly striking, very limited mintage Wedged-Tailed Eagle Proof High-Relief 2020 edition is absolutely a must-have! Each coin is housed Perth Mint presentation case, packaged with an illustrated shipper and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
