Minted just this year by Australian’s Perth Mint, the new 2014 1 oz. Australian Silver Saltwater Crocodile coin represents a one dollar face value in Australia, but is much more valuable to silver investors and collectors not just in Australia, but around the world. This coin is the first is a planned series of coins crafted in Australia to commemorate Australian’s well-loved wildlife. It contains one ounce of .999 pure silver, and is delivered in new, brilliant uncirculated (BU) condition. The brand new coin is also delivered in the Perth Mint company’s own original mint tubes and monster boxes, to ensure authenticity.
This specific coin was minted to honor the famed Australian Saltwater Crocodile, one of the most-loved animals in Australia. The exquisitely detailed crocodile image with its jaws wide opened on the reverse side of the coin is said to be a replica of Bindi, the popular female Saltwater Crocodile found at the Australian Zoo.
Bindi gained popularity, when famed Crocodile Hunter, Steve Erwin, proclaimed she was his favorite crocodile and even named his daughter after the reptile. The reverse side also includes the caption Australian Saltwater Crocodile 2014 1 oz. 999 Silver, with Perth mint’s well-known P mark displayed, as well. The front side of the coin depicts a picture of Queen Elizabeth II, along with the words Queen Elizabeth II, Australia, and One Dollar, which is common for Perth minted coins.
Since this is the first in a series of Australian silver coins to be minted, it makes this the perfect starter coin for any collector or investor, as he/she can continue to collect future coins in the series. It is also a great addition for avid collectors and/or investors who are hoping to expand their current precious coins portfolio. This also makes the perfect gift for any coin collection, investor, wildlife advocate, or Steve Erwin fan.
