The 2006 Proof Silver Red Back Spider features a striking black and red coloring bring this little devil in to sharp focus on the coin's brilliant mirror-like background. The Raphael Maklouf likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse.
Each coin is housed in a high-gloss timber presentation case and illustrated outer box appropriately emblazoned with the word ‘Danger’, also accompanied by a numbered CoA.
Found all over Australia and particularly common in urban areas, Red-Back spiders can deliver an extremely painful bite. Thank goodness for Dr Saul Wiener, who discovered an anti-venom in 1956. This coin marks the 50th anniversary of Dr Wiener's discovery.
