Minted with a 99.9% fine silver, the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coin NGC MS70 is graded with MS70 from the NGC. The unique design of John Mercanti shows a photo of the wedge tail eagle sitting proudly atop a tree branch and staring into the horizon. The 2016 coin is graded with an MS70 grading because it’s considered a perfect specimen and has no imperfections post-production. The coin also retains its original mint luster, even when viewed under a 5x magnitude.

The Australian Wedge Tail Eagle Coin series began in 2014 and has been a collection that continues to grow in popularity among coin collectors everywhere. Every year, John Mercanti has teamed up with the Perth Mint to create each unique eagle design, in honor of Australia’s largest bird of prey. Mercanti’s skills, along with the Perth Mint’s production quality, makes the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coin NGC MS70 a great addition to this collection.

On the obverse of the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coin NGC MS70, there’s the renowned portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Similar to past coins in the series, the picture of Queen Elizabeth II honors her as a revered leader of Australia.

The reverse of the 2016 1 oz Australian Silver Wedge Tail Eagle Coin NGC MS70 shows a wedge tail eagle sitting atop a tree branch. It looks majestically into the distance, searching for its next target of prey. With the eagle positioned on the center of the coin’s reverse, it has the viewer’s full attention. On the reverse of the coin, there is also the text “AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE”, the “P” mintmark of the Perth Mint, and the purity and weight of the coin.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Please note, the Silver.com website accepts orders 24/7/365, so you can always lock in live product prices and make purchases outside of business hours.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?

We currently only ship to addresses in the United States, including APOs.
