2017 $1 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proof Coin

This beautiful silver coin celebrates one of Australia's most incredible birds of prey, the wedge-tailed eagle.

These majestic creatures can often be seen perched in trees and on rocks and cliffs, from where they have a clear view of their surroundings, enabling them to defend their territory and identify prey.

The 2017 Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proof Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.9% pure silver to proof quality, and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. 

The coin’s reverse features an impressive Wedge-Tailed Eagle perched on a tree branch.

The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2017 year-date and The Perth Mint‘s ‘P’ Mintmark.

The coin’s reverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

For this design, The Perth Mint commissioned American sculptor and engraver, John M. Mercanti, the 12th Chief Engraver of the US Mint. John Mercanti created the reverse design of the American Silver Eagle Bullion coin and has produced more coin and medal designs than any other employee in the history of the US Mint.

Each coin is housed in a grey presentation case with a themed, customised shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
