The Perth Mint of Western Australia is famed for the production of gold and silver bullion coins that feature images of native animal species on the Australian continent. From time to time, coins are issued as standalone releases or as part of a larger series that focuses on different types or groups of animals from the continent. Today, 2015 1 oz Australian Silver Funnel-Web Spider Coins are available to you in near-perfect condition from JM Bullion.

The funnel-web spider is a medium- to large-sized family of spiders. There are various subspecies within the funnel-web family, and though the spiders all have the capacity to produce venom, only one or two of the subspecies have ever been known to produce a venom that poses a threat to humans.
All of the 2015 1 oz Australian Silver Funnel-Web Spider Coins in this product listing come with a certification from the PCGS. Coins with the Mint State 69 grade have full, original mint luster and present with no more than two minor detracting flaws. Examples of acceptable flaws at this level include only minuscule contact marks or hairlines outside of the primary focal points.
On the obverse side of each 2015 Australian Silver Funnel-Web Spider Coin is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This is the fifth-generation Australian portrait of the monarch and it was adopted on Australian denominations in 1999. It was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley for the Royal Mint of England.
The reverse face of 2015 1 oz Australian Silver Funnel-Web Spider Coins includes a rendition of the funnel-web spider. The spiders body is featured in the center with a blank background field. Inscriptions of the design name, date of issue, weight, purity, and metal content all feature on this side of the coin.
Founded in 1899, the Perth Mint is the oldest operating mint in Australia. It was originally intended to serve as the third branch facility of the Royal Mint of England, but would go on to operate alongside the Melbourne Mint to produce colonial currency during the federation transition.
