Introducing the 2023 $10 Funnel Web Spider Ultra-High Relief 5oz Silver Proof Coin, the closest you’ll dare to get to Australia’s most notorious arachnid! This hair-raising Proof, celebrating the funnel web spider, is crawling with phenomenal features, making it the ultimate acquisition for arachnophiles and coin collectors alike! A massive 5oz of PURE SILVER is just the beginning, and barely enough to contain one of nature’s most impressive creatures…
Funnel-web spiders live in the moist forest regions of the east coast and highlands of Australia, from Tasmania to north Queensland. Named for their funnel-shaped webs, this spider lurks in the narrow opening waiting for prey to disturb their web. When this happens, the spider rushes out, displaying a quick and aggressive temperament, ready to deploy a highly venomous bite that can kill in minutes!
We won’t blame you for being hesitant to get too close to this numismatic wonder. The Ultra-High Relief, Proof quality design brings the funnel web spider to life in terrifying three-dimensional detail that does spectacular justice to its distinctive spinnerets, fangs and long legs! The realism is heightened by state-of-the-art Digital Colour minting, enhancing the glossy black/brown carapace that covers the front part of its huge body. Like the funnel web spider itself, this 65mm coin is very large, giving its subject plenty of space to roam. Official Niue legal tender, it’s enough to send collectors into a tailspin!
Big, beautiful and EXCLUSIVE, a strictly limited mintage of only 500 of these impressive coins has been set worldwide.
