Beautiful and historic, this 2oz silver stunner is the first Proof piedfort coin ever released by the Perth Mint! It boasts a superb motif, impeccable craftsmanship and small mintage - a triple-threat that's destined to delight collectors.

French for 'heavy weight', a piedfort coin is thicker than a traditional Proof, creating a delightfully chunky profile. With its maximum thickness of 6.42mm, this Australian legal tender issue is no exception.

The coin's diameter is equally generous at 40.60mm, allowing ample space for its excellent reverse motif to shine through. From the mind of US master sculptor and engraver John Mercanti, this design of a mother eagle and her chick does not disappoint. It's little wonder - with copious experience working with US coinage, it's fair to say that Mercanti knows a thing or two about eagles.

With just 3,000 struck, we recommend you act quickly to secure this Perth Mint pioneer. Its extra-heavy footprint won't go unnoticed - click 'add to cart' now!
