    I got the email from The Perth Mint today. I really like this coin, the bird looks really good with that aggressive looking beak/face, wings spread and claws out. I'm pretty sure I'll buy some, looks better than last years I think.

    Anyhow here is the link, what do you think? http://www.perthmintbullion.com/au/Buy-Silver-Coins/1oz.aspx?size=18

    Big yes from me. I’m not a collector of the wedge tail eagles normally, but I’ll probably pick up a roll or two. IMO, best design of the series so far.

    I just grabbed one off Swan Bullion ebay today to have a look at. Seems a little pricey at ~$15 over spot, shipped, but I am really new to this whole silver game and want to have a look at it first before I buy more. But yeah, it looks awesome. How long do coins like this normally stay in stock for bulk purchase at places like Perth Mint?

    I was a collector during the first few years but disgusted after the awful 2018 design! (Ditto for the stock horse series.) This latest eagle is just so-so, the one I like best is the one in 2019.

    They must do something with the Queen side too.

    QEII image appears to be pre "Megxit".

    They look fantastic in hand! ;) Grabbed a box this morning. The detail on the coins is brilliant.
