Product Details

As low as $2.59 per coin over spot!
The Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), also known as saltie, estuarine or Indo-Pacific crocodile, is the largest of all living reptiles, as well as the largest terrestrial and riparian predator in the world. The Saltwater Crocodile is the largest reptile in the world and is found in suitable habitats from northern Australia through Southeast Asia to the eastern coast of India. Males can grow to 7 meters in length and weigh over 1,000 kilograms. Females are much smaller and reach only 4 meters in length and 100 kilograms in weight. The Saltwater Crocodile is an extremely formidable and opportunistic predator capable of killing almost any animal that enters its territory. Due to their size and distribution, they are the most dangerous of all crocodiles to humans.

Each coin is struck in 1 troy ounce of 99.9% pure silver with a diameter of 40.60 mm. A maximum mintage of 1,000,000 pieces worldwide has been established. The coin’s reverse features a large saltwater crocodile with its mouth open, displaying its sharp teeth. It also features the inscription AUSTRALIAN SALTWATER CROCODILE, the 2014 year-date and coin specifications as well as The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark. The coin’s obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination. Orders in multiples of 25 coins will come packaged in mint tubes, and 500 or more are packaged in Monster Boxes.

      Disappointed

      I just received 12 of these Silver Australian Saltwater Crocodile's today and all of them arrived scratched or scuffed probably because they don't came in Air-Tite Holders like most of the Perth Mint coins.

              This is a nice coin. The detail on the crocodile is very nice, but the frosted portion seems a bit off when compared to the quality of the koala and kookaburra coins that also come out of Perth.

                      I just started collecting and missed out on the Perth Mint 1 oz Lunar horse. So when APMEX notified me about pre-ordering this coin I wasn't really excited about it (as the picture does not do it justice). I was very happy when I received the coin as it is VERY nice.

                        The coins were a lot nicer than I thought they were going to be. The reverse proof finish is beautiful. I bought 4 of these coins and will probably order 6 more. The price was very competitive with other one ounce silver bullion coins. Additionally, the product arrived within 3 days of ordering it!

                            I like things from the Perth Mint.
                            Crocodile in reverse proof is nice.
                            The Queen is NOT in reverse proof.(mint made a bad decision).

                            There are minute spots visible with a x4 magnifying glass on over half of the ten I bought. I don't recommend sending these in for grading. The graders will use a x10 and you afre likely to get many 68 grades which is a waste of grading fees.

                            Service and delivery comments:

                            I placed the order on Friday, mailed the check on Saturday, APMEX got it on Tuesday, shipped on Wednesday and I got my coins on Friday with an accurate packing slip and a nifty little blue box for storage..

                            That's what i call fabulous service!

                                The design is great and it costs a little more than some popular bullion coins with much higher mintages.

                                    I thought these were really neat! Perth always does a great job on their mintage coins. Maybe not quite as fancy as the Lunars etc but fantastic for the money. The two toned coins are my favorite. Wish they had this in 10 oz.

                                        I purchased this coin because of its design and also that it was struck at the Perth Mint, which produces wonderful work. The coin has a high luster crocodile on a matte background which is quite lovely and striking to the eye. Even the Queen's picture on the reverse utilizes varying degrees of sheen...very nicely done. I recommend this coin as an addition to any collection.

                                            After some negative reviews I decided to take the gamble and ordered 3 coins, the price was attractive at sub $24 per coin. I was pleasantly surprised to receive 3 coins without scratches and scuff marks.

                                            These coins would be perfect like their Kookaburra and Koala brothers if they came in a capsule.

                                            Once again, APMEX customer service and shipping was top notch! It took two days to arrive to my house.
