The Perth Mint introduced the Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle series in 2014. To date, the series has featured masterful imagery reflecting the life and majestic beauty of Australia's largest bird of prey designed exclusively by American sculptor John Mercanti (the former 12th U.S. Mint Chief Engraver).
This 2022 release represents the series' first two ounce silver Piedfort style coin to be minted with an enhanced reverse proof finish. The mirrored design elements on the enhanced reverse proof coin are selectively embellished with multiple degrees of frosted texture, resulting in an image with astounding depth and dimension.
