2020 Australia $1 1-oz Silver Redback Spider BU
A Spider You’d be Happy to Have in Your Home
Here’s a coin that’s taking our WEB-site by storm – and is it any wonder? It is, after all, a spider coin! Struck by the world-renowned Royal Australian Mint, this coin features a creepy image of the infamous Redback Spider, but it’s one spider you’ll actually be happy to have in your home!
Minted in a full ounce of highly pure 99.9% fine silver, this legal-tender $1 coin shows the dangerous little arachnid crawling across her web in preparation for her next vict… er, “guest” to visit her parlor. Known as the “Australian Black Widow,” the Redback Spider is one of the world’s few spider species that are actually dangerous. In fact, this species’ proclivity for spinning webs in man-made structures virtually insures it will come in contact with humans – contact that has resulted in many serious spider bites in Australia. The Redback Spider is reportedly responsible for more than 250 cases each year that have required a dose of antivenom. Symptoms of a bite include nausea, vomiting, headache, malaise, lethargy and, in rare cases, death.
The coin also depicts the Redback Spider’s hourglass shapes and its distinctive marking. Female Redbacks have a red-orange dorsal stripe, males have pale marks. The design shows the spider surrounded by her webbing and name in big, bold letters along with the coin’s silver purity. Brought to life in stunning Brilliant Uncirculated (BU) condition, your coin will arrive to you as sharp and crisp as the day it left the mint. The maximum worldwide limited edition for this bullion coin has been set at just 25,000, however, so don’t get trapped in a web of indecision – order your coin today!
- A DESIGN THAT WILL TRAP YOU IN ITS WEB – Australia’s Redback Spider belongs to a family that spans the globe. In the United States, we have the Black Widow, a close relative. The arachnid is depicted spinning on web on the reverse while the obverse features the portrait of Queen Elizabeth II.
