The Perth Mint has issued piedfort coins in the past. The concept of piedfort coinage comes from the French pied-fort, which translates directly as heavy weight. Piedfort coins are heavy-weight specimens struck on a standard bullion blank with the same diameter of a 1 oz coin, but have much greater thickness.
On the reverse of the 2019 2 oz Australian Mother & Baby Crocodile Silver Coins is the design of a mother crocodile floating along the surface of the water with her eyes peering out for danger. On top of her head, there is a young crocodile baby with its mouth wide open. This design comes from Jennifer McKenna.
Australia is home to two different crocodile species. Both types of crocodiles are native to the tropical regions of Queensland. The freshwater crocodile is found in inland waterways and reach lengths of 3 meters on average, with women averaging 2 meters in length. The saltwater crocodile is found in estuaries, rivers, lagoons, and swamps throughout the tropics. Saltwater crocodiles also grow much larger, reaching an average length in males of 7 meters and 4 meters for females.
The obverse of 2019 Australian Mother & Baby Crocodile Silver Coins is the image of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is seen here in the sixth-generation design from Jody Clark, the man who created the fifth-generation effigy of the Queen for the Royal Mint of England. This is the first effigy of the Queen since 1966 to showcase the neckline and shoulders of the Queen.
