Product Details


The Redback spider is the eighth design in the Australian Map Shaped Coin Series. The Australian Redback spider is a venomous spider native to Australia. Most large spider bites in Australia are courtesy the Redback, and it's venom can cause serious harm if a victim is not treated quickly with the antidote. The female is much larger than the male, and the species is one of the few to often feature sexual cannibalism while mating.

The obverse features the Queen Elizabeth II effigy by Ian Rank-Broadley and the words "ELIZABETH II AUSTRALIA 2015 1 DOLLAR". The reverse depicts the struck design of an Australian Redback spider against a colourized background of red rocks and indigenous plants. The inscription "Redback Spider" appears above the spider as well as the words "1 oz 999 Silver" with the year 2015 below it.

Limited to a worldwide mintage of only 6,000 this memorable coin is a collector's favourite.


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.

This unique map shaped coin is made with 999 pure silver and comes encapsulated with a serialized certificate in a grey clamshell case.
