Product Information

 

The second coin from this remarkable series features the Thorny Devil Lizard.

The colouring of this distinctive lizard helps to camouflage it from predators, and the sharp spines or thorns which cover the length of its body protect it from any attacks. This fearsome looking creature is a magnificent addition to this popular series celebrating Australia's remarkable reptiles.

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint on behalf of Downies from 1oz of 99.9% silver in proof quality.
