The Australian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 2021 1oz Silver Bullion Coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 99.99% pure silver and issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965. This coin has a mintage of 50,000.

Sculpted for The Perth Mint by renowned US engraver, John M. Mercanti, the coin’s reverse depicts a swooping wedge-tailed eagle with a snake in its talons. The design also includes the inscription ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’, the 2021 year-date, the coin’s weight and fineness, and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

The coin’s obverse depicts the Jody Clarke effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Each coin’s reverse includes a security feature in the form of a micro-laser engraved letter within the coin’s ‘AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE’ inscription. It is only detectable under a magnifying glass.

Perth Mint coins come encased in a hard clear plastic case to help keep coins in pristine condition. Ainslie Bullion recommends leaving these cases un-tampered for the best preservation of value.

Named for its long, distinctively shaped tail, the wedge-tailed eagle is Australia’s largest bird of prey and one of the biggest eagles in the world. Found throughout mainland Australia, Tasmania and southern Papua New Guinea, the bird has an impressive wingspan of up to 2.7 metres.
