The popular Hunters By Night series of coins is a celebration of some of the most extraordinary nocturnal predator species in the world. One recent issue was devoted to Australia’s black-headed python, featuring detailed and naturalistic artwork of the ambush predator’s head and its gleaming eyes. A version of that design struck in a full kilogram of pure silver is one of the most anticipated releases of 2023, comprising one of the most exclusive releases of the year with a maximum mintage of just under a hundred. Sure to be prized by collectors, investors, and wildlife enthusiasts alike, the 2023 1 Kilo Palau Silver Hunters By Night Python Coin features a black-proof finish and ultra high-relief design.

The black-headed python evolved for both nocturnal hunting and daytime heat distribution, its obsidian-scaled head proving an ideal means of spreading heat to its entire body through contact with a little morning sunlight. This remarkable predator is Australia’s entry into a group of snake species spread across multiple continents, featuring a matte-black head that has inspired the designs of stunning collectibles from the Republic of Palau, with the latest release being particularly substantial and exclusive.
The 2023 Palau Silver Hunters By Night Python Coin features a full kilogram of pure silver sculpted with cutting-edge SmartMinting technology, providing a proof-quality and obsidian-black finish that accentuates its ultra high-relief engraving. It ships through the team at JM Bullion with a Certificate of Authenticity, contained in a windowed presentation case, and we recommend ordering early given the extremely limited supply.
The coin’s obverse side features Palau’s Rainbow’s End emblem surrounded by the jagged rocks and starry sky of the Australian wilderness. This is accompanied by the inscriptions “Republic of Palau,” “Hunters By Night,” and “50$.”
An ultra high-relief sculpture of a black python’s head comprises the reverse side, coming up from the coin’s surface almost three-dimensionally, with its tongue sensing its environment and its red-gold eyes starting. Its scaly coils form a backdrop to the portrait.
