The Sleeper-Eagle of the Year is Finally Here! 2021’s 1 oz. Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle has arrived!
No one does 1 oz. World Silver quite like Australia. Their Kookaburra’s, Kangaroos, and Koala’s are some of the most sought-after Silver Wildlife coins released annually, with newer pieces coming every year! Over the last calendar year we saw the newest editions to their 1 oz. silver line-up, the Dolphin & Great White Shark, take collecting by storm! They were the perfect combination of incredibly small mintage figures with the world’s love for iconic the creatures to become an immediate success!
We are proud to announce the arrival of the newest 2021 edition to one of the most popular Australian Silver coins released each year: the 1 oz. Wedge-Tailed Silver Eagle!
One of the most Popular Silver Coins in Australian history – the Wedge-Tailed Eagle!
The 1oz. Wedge-tailed Silver eagle was a series started by the Perth Mint in 2014 and has produced one coin per year since. The 2021 issue is the 7th coin in the series that has only grown more popular as the years have ticked by! The popularity surrounding these 1 oz. silver pieces is the result of their beautiful designs and their incredibly small mintages! The 2021 1 oz. Wedge-Tailed Silver Eagle will have a minuscule mintage of just 50,000 total coins! (For comparison they strike well over 500,000 Silver Kookaburras each year!)
This special 2021 detailed close-up rendition of a Wedge-Tailed Eagle as grasps its prey, a snake, between its claws! The Inscriptions of "AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE," "2021 1 OZ 9999 SILVER" and the Mint mark "P." are also visible. The Reverse of this design bears the Jody Clark likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the date “2021” and the denomination of the coin (1 Dollar).
Did you know? This wedge-tailed Eagle Series in Australia uses designs made by John Mercanti himself! Every design in the series since its inception in 2014 are all his work!
