Australia’s largest bird of prey
Meaning ‘heavy weight’, piedforts were originally struck in France during the 12th century for presentation purposes. At twice the weight and thickness of other coins of the same diameter, the historic piedfort is a fittingly impressive canvas for John’s outstanding artistry.
Intimate family portrait
The 40.6mm coin is struck from 2oz of 99.99% pure silver to our renowned proof standard combining a mirror-like polished background with delicately frosted relief.
The coin’s reverse features Australia’s largest bird of prey with a touching family scene of a mother and father tending their new hatchling.
Accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity, each coin in the mintage is housed in a textured grey display case and beautifully embossed shipper.
