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.
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'.
The coin is presented in a high-gloss timber display case within an illustrated shipper emblazoned with the warning ‘DANGER’. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity.
