All coins included in this collection have been designated a perfect grade of MS 70 by the NGC and will arrive sealed in a NGC coin slab.
The coin’s obverse shows Australia’s fierce predator, the saltwater crocodile. This vicious reptile is seen poised in the midst of attack with its powerful jaw open and ready to clamp down upon its victim. From the tough texture of its skin to the realistic positioning of its long body, viewers are certain to be impressed with how accurately each detail has been rendered. Encircling this menacing portrait are the animal’s name, “Australian Saltwater Crocodile,” with the coin’s mintage year, weight and purity.
Far from inspiring fear, the reverse of the coin offers a sense of reassurance with the serene countenance of Elizabeth II. This effigy depicts the benevolent ruler turned in profile and attired in her trademark bejeweled crown. The portrait not only pays tribute to the monarch herself, but also to Australia’s pride as a member of the British Commonwealth. Printed along the edge of the coin are HRM’s official title accompanied by the coin’s denomination and country of origin.
