This is a 2015 1 oz Silver Funnel-Web Spider Coin from the Perth Mint.
The Perth Mint released a brand new 1oz silver bullion coin - the Funnel-Web Spider - on the 16th March, 2015.
This coin follows on from the successful Salt Water Crocodile coins, which sold out of its one million mintage within a record three months!
The coin features the Australian Funnel-Web Spider. There are more than 40 species of Funnel-Web Spider in Australia, several are renowned for their fast-acting and highly toxic venom. The most infamous is the aggressive Sydney Funnel-Web, specifically the male with more potent venom, its powerful fangs are longer than that of a brown snake.
Since the introduction of Sydney Funnel-Web Spider antivenom in 1981, there have been no more fatalities connected to the Sydney Funnel-Web Spider.
This was the second coin in a planned new series from the Perth Mint. The Perth Mint stopped minting the coins after 2015. They were instead replaced with the new Kangaroo series.
The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The reverse features a large venemous Autralian Funnel-Web Spider. The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark can be found in the legend inscription.
It was designed Aleysha Howarth.
