Do you remember the collection „Incredible reptiles of Australia” from Tuvalu? The series, which was so highly appreciated by the numismatists from all over the world, comes back in style. Another edition – this time with an image of a saltwater crocodile. Let’s say it out loud – the manufacturers managed to depict the animal ‘s character really convincingly!
Silver and a crocodile
Each of the five thousand coins was issued with one ounce of pure silver of 999 fineness. Browsing through the photos, you surely notice a sharp contrast between the silver surface of the coin and the colour of the crocodile’s image. Yes, the colours are vivid and long-lasting and the coin itself attracts the attention in a trice.
I attach to the set a certificate confirming authenticity of the new unit. The coin, just like the other ones from Tuvalu, can be kept in an attached, exclusive case.
The fact that the coin is issued in Perth Mint proves the quality of our newest proposal. The ugly crocodile is accompanied by Queen Elisabeth the Second. You can invest in coin collecting or make a gift to a real lover of oceanic fauna.
