2019 $2 Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2oz Silver Proof Piedfort Coin

A tribute to the historical coin first struck in 12th century France, this extra-thick 2oz silver coin features celebrated American engraver John M. Mercanti's fourth design for The Perth Mint. Struck to our acclaimed proof quality standard, the unique addition to our beloved Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series is a shining example of quality minting.

The Perth mint will release no more than 2,500 of the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2oz Silver Proof Piedfort Coins.

Designed by John Mecanti, the coin's superb high relief reverse features a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle in flight with wings fully extended and stylised rays of sunlight in the background.

The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the 2019 year-date, the coin's weight and fineness and The Perth Mint's 'P' Mintmark.

Each coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 2oz of 99.9% pure silver to proof quality and is issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965.

With its extra thick planchet, this 2oz coin is reminiscent of traditional 'piedforts' (pronounced pee-ay-fore), which take their name from the French words for heavy weight. Piedforts were struck in France during the 12th century for visiting dignitaries and served as tangible reminders of the kingdom's power.

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