The Perth Mint Mythical Creatures
In mythology, the basilisk is a frightening beast first described by ancient Romans, notably Lucan the poet, and the natural philosopher Pliny the Elder. Based on their texts, the serpentine-shaped basilisk could slaughter almost all living forms with its deadly venom, horrendous breath or even its lethal gaze. Displaying a white spot on its crested head, resembling a crown, the basilisk became known as the king of the serpents! This 1 oz .9999 fine Gold Basilisk release follows the previous release of the 5 oz Gold Griffin from The Perth Mint's Mythical Creatures series.
