Eagle coin strikes a pose

Former chief engraver of the US Mint and master of avian design John M. Mercanti depicts the Australian wedge-tailed eagle’s impressive wingspan in his latest design for The Perth Mint. The extraordinary detail of a high relief strike portrays Australia’s largest bird of prey with outstanding clarity.
