Australia is famous for its native species of wildlife. Everything from the koala and kookaburra to the kangaroo and crocodile appear on the face of silver bullion coins from the Perth Mint. Although it is one of the smallest creatures on the continent, the funnel-web spider is nonetheless unique and worthy of note. Each of these coins is struck by the Perth Mint using .999 fine silver and carries a face value of $1 (AUD).
There are 40 different species of funnel-web spiders in Australia, which are commonly broken down into Hadronyche and Atrax groups. The creatures vary in size from 1 centimeter to 5 centimeters in length. Both male and female spiders have coloring that includes black and brown, with a hard carapace over the head, light hair over the body, and a glossy appearance.
On the reverse side of the 2015 1 oz. Australian Silver Spider coin is the depiction of a funnel-spider. The creature’s depiction is simple, with details limited to the hair on its body and the joints in its eight legs. Engravings include “Australian Funnel-Web Spider,” the year of minting, weight, purity, and metal content of the coin. On the obverse is the standard right-profile portrait of Queen Elizabeth, as designed by Ian Rank-Broadley, that is featured on all Australian coins. Engravings include “Elizabeth II,” “Australia,” and the face value of the coin.
The Perth Mint is Australia’s oldest operating facility. Once a part of the Royal Mint system under the rule of the United Kingdom, the Perth Mint is now a state-owned entity of the State of Western Australia. The Mint does not have any affiliation with the Royal Australian Mint or the central government.
