John M. Mercanti design

This beautifully composed new portrayal features meticulously observed plumage, including the wedge-tailed eagle's characteristic tail and magnificent wingspan, all depicted in splendid high relief. The former Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, John M. Mercanti, captures the intimate bond between mother and eaglet while a protective male hovers in the sky overhead.

High relief finish

The depth and detail of the design has been enhanced by its high relief finish. The Perth Mint's proof quality high relief strike is renowned throughout the world for its superb clarity and the additional detail it portrays.
