2020 $5 Inside Australia's Most Dangerous - Western Taipan 1oz Silver Proof
An impressive new set of silver coins from the Royal Australian Mint, the Australia's Most Deadly series depicts some of Australia€™s most dangerous and aggressive animals! Even better, each ferocious critter is shown only by its skeleton! The Western Taipan is a frightening critter. One of the most toxic snakes in the world, if not the most toxic, every bite from this slithering serpent has enough venom, enough fatality, to kill more than 100 fully grown men! Luckily for Australians, the Western Taipan lives remotely, and is a shy and retiring type. Struck from one ounce of 99.9% pure silver, and measuring 40mm in diameter, each of these skeletal-themed new issues is beautiful and impressive. Mintage of each is just 5,000.
