Deadly and Dangerous Funnel Web Spider 2012 1oz Silver Proof Coin

One sight of this creepy crawly sends shivers up the spine!

PREVIOUS RELEASES SOLD OUT

The Australian Funnel Web Spider is one of the world’s deadliest spiders, recognised by their glossy black head and thorax. The insect’s size ranges from 1.5cm to 5cm in length – dependant on the species. Funnel Web Spiders live in burrows below ground or other similarly sheltered positions above the ground. The mature male will wander at night, looking for a mate, and is the deliverer of the deadliest toxin. Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality, the Tuvalu legal tender coin’s reverse depicts a deadly Funnel Web Spider against a coloured background of its web and leaves. Limited to a mintage of only 5,000, the coin is presented in a superb highgloss timber display case, with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity and a shipper, emblazoned with the warning ‘DANGER!’

Wildlife in Need – Siberian Tiger 2012 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Help this noble beast survive.

The Tuvalu legal tender coin’s reverse depicts a magnificent Siberian Tiger and cub in colour, set against a winter forest landscape. The coin is struck by The Perth Mint on behalf of Coin Club Australia from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality. With each purchase a donation of $1.99 is made to WWF Australia on your behalf. The Siberian Tiger is easily recognised by its magnificent striped coat, which is used as camouflage, with no two tigers displaying the same patterning. Sadly, poaching is still a significant threat to Siberian Tigers as they are prized by trophy hunters and their body parts are still used in traditional Chinese medicine. Presented in themed packaging, a classic display case and accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, no more than 5,000 coins will be released. Do your part to save the Siberian Tiger and get a beautiful coin as a bonus!
