The world renowned Perth Mint in Australia has released this new coin continuing their theme of featuring some of Australia's deadliest creatures. Australia has more than 40 species of funnel-web spiders, which is considered one of the world's deadliest spiders, both in terms of clinical cases and toxicity of it's venom. The funnel-web has fangs longer than some snakes, and they are powerful enough to bite through a human toenail.

The obverse of the coin features the Ian-Rank Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II and the words "Elizabeth II Australia 1 Dollar" and the artist's initials.

The reverse features an overhead view of a funnel-web spider with it's long legs, hairy body and large fangs. It is surrounded by the words "Australian Funnel-Web Spider 2015 1 oz 999 Silver" and the traditional Perth Mint "P" mintmark.

These beautiful one ounce 999 pure silver coins are limited to a world wide mintage of only one million and are sure to sell out fast.


The Perth Mint opened in 1899 as the British Royal Mint's 3rd branch in Australia. The historical Hay Street location handled gold refining until moving to a modern facility in April 1990. Ownership of the mint was transferred to the Government of Western Australia in July of 1970. Under an agreement with the Commonwealth Treasury, they were empowered to mint and market gold, silver, and platinum as Australian legal tender to investors and collectors worldwide. Today, they are amongst the elite world mints whose pure gold, silver, and platinum items are trusted without question. Items such as the Australian Nugget, Silver Coin Series (Kangaroo, Kookaburra, Koala, and Platypus to name a few), as well as the Australian Lunar Gold and Silver Coin Series are extensively sought after by bullion investors worldwide.

In multiples of 25 these coins will be shipped in a plastic tube. In multiples of 500 these coins will be shipped in a monster box.
