Silver Two Ounces 2020 Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle, Coin from Australia
CoinSilver Two Ounces 2020 Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle

The Australian two ounces silver piece (abbreviated as 2 oz and designated with Ag for "silver") is a bullion and commemorative coin format. Uniquely, in Australia there are two mints authorised to strike legal tender: the Royal Australian Mint (which also makes the country's circulating coinage) and the Perth Mint which only makes collector and bullion coins, as well as other bullion products.

Both mints endeavour to create coins with attractive designs, and to introduce new designs and themes often, in order to raise the numismatic value of the coins over the value of previous metal used.

This coin is part of the Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle series by the Perth Mint, and the fifth design by John M. Mercanti (the series features a new design every year).

The Mint says about it:
"This extraordinary 2oz silver proof piedfort coin portrays a fresh new design celebrating Australia’s largest bird of prey. This release is a stunning addition to The Perth Mint’s Australian Wedge-tailed Eagle series featuring the fifth exclusive design by John M. Mercanti, former Chief Engraver of the US Mint.

The coin’s reverse depicts a magnificent wedge-tailed eagle swooping on its prey in the midst of a hunt."

Obverse

The obverse of the coin depicts the crowned old head of Queen Elizabeth II facing right, wearing the Royal Diamond Diadem crown and the Victoria Coronation necklace worn for her Coronation. This is her effigy known as the "Fifth Portrait" worldwide and "Sixth Portrait" in Australia, in "uncouped" version - showing the Queen's shoulders and not terminating at the neck as the normal version.

On the left, in small letters on the Queen's shoulder, the artist's initials J.C (for Jody Clark).

Running continuously around the rim is the monarch's legend and the face value: ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA · 2 DOLLARS ·.

The P mint mark of the Perth Mint is above the eagle. The designer's initials JM (for John M. Mercanti) are on the eagle's foot.
