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.
