An interesting feature of this coin is the lenticular image of the Tasmanian Tiger seen on the reverse. As the coin is turned, different imprinted images show the tiger moving toward the view. This lenticular effect can be seen below.
This Proof coin is .925 Silver (sterling Silver) with a weight of 25 grams.
In the name of wildlife preservation, this Silver coin remembers the 75th anniversary of the demise of an entire species. The Thylacine was an animal like no other. Known commonly as a Tasmanian Tiger, it resembled a large, short-haired dog with a head like a wolf, a striped body like a tiger, a backward facing pouch like a wombat and a stiff tail similar to that of a kangaroo.
Its powerful jaws could open to an unusual extent up to 120 degrees. The last captive Thylacine, known as Benjamin, was captured in 1933 and sent to the Hobart Zoo, where it died Sept. 7, 1936. Benjamin is seen in the last known motion picture footage of a living Thylacine, taken in 1933 by naturalist David Fleay. This footage was used to create the lenticular image on this Silver coin.
