Satanic Leaf-Tailed Geckos get their name because their eyes have a fiery appearance with sharp ridges around the edges. To some, this gives these creatures the appearance of a little devil. However, this very rare member of the genus of Uroplatus is quite harmless. In fact, many enjoy keeping them as pets.

On the island of Madagascar there exists an anti-social, arboreal member of the genus of Uroplatus known as the Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko. Because these geckos exist largely in the trees, they’ve adapted to their environment by forming a unique, leafy appearance. While their entire back features leaf-like veins, it is the tail of these geckos that truly mimic the appearance of leaves. Adding to the intrigue of this popular but rare species are their fire-like eyes, which some have said resemble the eyes of Satan himself.
On the obverse side of 2021 1/2 oz Silver Colorized Niue Wild Africa Series Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko Coins is the effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. She is seen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara in right-side profile. Ian Rank Broadley designed this iconic image in 1998, and it has appeared on numerous coins ever since. Along the edges we see the words Elizabeth II, Niue, 1 Dollar, 2021, and Ag .999.
For the reverse of 2021 1/2 oz Silver Antique Colorized Niue Wild Africa Series Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko Coins, we see a vivid close-up of the gecko’s fiery eye. A special UV varnish was used on this colorized depiction, which gives it a uniquely authentic look. Inscribed along the coin’s border are the words I See You, Do You See Me? In addition, the eye features a convex design to make it appear even more life-like.
All 2021 1/2 oz Silver Antique Colorized Niue Satanic Leaf-Tailed Gecko Coins arrive housed in plastic capsules inside a protective cardboard leaflet. The leaflet folds out to reveal background information on these geckos as well as the coin itself.
