produced by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
Coloured Reverse Design
Striking black and red colouring on the reverse design brings this little devil in
to sharp focus on the coin's brilliant mirror-like background.
Legal Tender Status
Issued as legal tender of Tuvalu, the coin depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of
Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Timber Presentation Case
Each coin is housed in a high-gloss timber presentation case, which comes in an
illustrated outer box.
No more than 5,000 of these coins will be released, each accompanied by a numbered
Certificate of Authenticity.
Found all over Australia and particularly common in urban areas,
Red-Back spiders can deliver an extremely painful bite. Thank goodness for Dr Saul Wiener,
who discovered an anti-venom in 1956.
