The obverse of the 2016 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin NGC MS70 shows the famous portrait of Queen Elizabeth II designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. Like other coins in this series, the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II is shown to honor her as a leader of Australia.


On the reverse of the 2016 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin NGC MS70, a wedge tail eagle is perched atop a branch. It looks into the distance and sits majestically, looking for its next target of prey. The reverse of the coin also features the text AUSTRALIAN WEDGE-TAILED EAGLE, the P mintmark from the Perth Mint, and the coins weight and purity.


Beginning in 2014, the Australian Wedge Tail Eagle series has grown in popularity among many coin collectors. Each year, coin designer John Mercanti works alongside the Perth Mint to create a unique design for each coin in the series. Similar to previous years, the 2016 coin honors Australias largest bird of prey. Mercantis skills and the production quality of the Perth Mint make the 2016 Australian Wedge Tail Eagle 1 oz Silver Coin NGC MS70 a perfect addition to the series.
