Mintage of only 5,000 coins!
First in the Endangered and Extinct series.
This Silver coin features a Colorized Tasmanian tiger and cub set against its natural habitat. The Raphael Maklouf image of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse in a beautiful Proof finish.
Each Silver coin is housed in a high-gloss wooden case, accompanied by a numbered CoA. Following the sell-out success of the “Deadly and Dangerous” series it can be expected that this release will go wild!
“Tyger, Tyger, burning bright in the forests of the night…” Just what the famous poet, Blake, might have written about the demise of the Tasmanian tiger, we can never know. Strictly speaking, the Tasmanian tiger is not a tiger at all, but a thylacine and marsupial. This fabled creature was sadly hunted to extinction.
