Danger ahead!

The Deadly and Dangerous series features some of Australia's most terrifying creatures. A true Australian by nature, the Red-bellied Black Snake is a sun and water lover! Common in woodlands,  swamps and forests and indigenous to Australia’s eastern regions, it is one of the most commonly encountered  venomous snakes. On average 1.25m in length it has smooth, glossy black scales that are highlighted by bright  reds and oranges at its flanks ‐ fading to a dull red belly. A truly eye‐catching reptile, it certainly rings true that  the most beautiful creatures on Earth are the deadliest.

Slithering design

The coin’s reverse highlights the imposing red-bellied black snake in colour, capturing the sleek animal poised to strike and showing its threatening, brightly coloured underbelly. Also included in the design is the inscription ‘AUSTRALIA’S RED-BELLIED BLACK SNAKE'.
