EAGAN, MN / ACCESSWIRE / May 6, 2024 / GovMint, one of the largest direct-to-consumer retailers of collectible coins, announces the release of the Tenth Anniversary 2024 Wedge-Tailed Eagles from Australia's Perth Mint, with an exceptionally detailed new design, the next step in the progression of Wedge-Tailed Eagle designs from the hand and mind of the former 12th Chief Engraver of the U.S. Mint, John Mercanti.

Numismatic history was made with the introduction of the Wedge-Tailed Eagle series in 2014 because it was the first time ever that a former U.S. Mint Chief Engraver (Mercanti) teamed up with a foreign mint (Australia's Perth Mint) to create a coin. The response among collectors worldwide was immediately overwhelming, and now, with this Tenth Anniversary edition, the Australia Wedge-Tailed Eagle series continues to be among the most anticipated releases each year, for collectors all around the globe.

GovMint has North American exclusivity on all 2024 Wedge-Tailed Eagle coins minted by the Perth Mint.

The next chapter in the momentous collaboration, these proofs portray a majestic Wedge-Tailed Eagle soaring in the sky decorated by stylized sun rays.

The obverse depicts the first definitive portrait of King Charles III for Australia. These are the FIRST Wedge-Tailed Eagles to feature King Charles III's effigy.

In addition, unique to these proofs is a miniature 2014 Wedge-Tailed Eagle design at the top of the obverse that pays homage to the original. Plus, each of these coins is inscribed "10th Anniversary" and features a "P125" mint mark in honor of the mint's 125th Anniversary, as opposed to the traditional Perth Mint mint mark.

Each gold and silver coin is graded by NGC as flawless Proof-70 Ultra Cameo and certified as First Day of Issue. Further, each of these is encapsulated with an exclusive Australian Flag label hand-signed by designer John Mercanti, the man who has created more coin and medal designs than anyone in U.S. Mint history. In addition, for the FIRST time, each 2024 one-ounce Silver Wedge-Tailed Eagle features a 99.99% purity gold gilded design.

These Wedge-Tailed Eagle Proofs have highly limited worldwide mintages-just 500 of the one-ounce gold, just 1,000 of the five-ounce silver and just 5,000 of the one-ounce silver proofs were authorized.
