Perth Mint presents the Australian Funnel-Web Spider bullion coin to enhance its theme of deadly animals now featured on the nation’s investment coin issues.
Australia has more than 40 species of Funnel-Web Spider with several renowned for their highly toxic and fast-acting venom.
The coin’s reverse features a large funnel-web spider, displaying its sprawled legs and hairy body. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIAN FUNNEL-WEB SPIDER, the 2015 year-date, the coin specifications, and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.
Meticulously struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver, this edition to the Australian Bullion Coin Program was released on the success of the 2014 Saltwater Crocodile bullion issue, which sold out of its one million mintage within a record three months.
The Perth Mint released no more than 1,000,000 of this highly anticipated coins worldwide in 2015. With a minimum order quantity of 25, these bullion coins are presented without capsules in protective tubes, which are each sealed with a Perth Mint branded tamper evident security seal.
