9 years ago, John Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, teamed up with the Perth Mint to create the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series. It was the first time that a Chief Engraver of the United States Mint partnered with a foreign mint! The 2023 exclusive design depicts an eagle mid-flight grasping an olive branch. This design shows Australia's largest bird of prey in all its glory! Struck in high relief on a .9999 fine 1oz silver planchet, this piece is a collector's dream.
The Australian flag label and core will set this piece apart in your colleciton! It has the coveted First Day of Issue designation, meaning it was sent to NGC after being purchased from the mint on release day. The label has also been signed by John Mercanti, the designer of the coin! The mintage was limited to 50,000 coins, and only 800 exist with this signed label!
