These bullion coins are presented in an after market capsule and comes in protective tubes of 25 coins. There are 20 tubes to a monster box. Each tube is sealed with The Perth Mint’s tamper evident security seal. They are the same dimensions as the Kookaburra and Koala 1oz silver coins.
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.
Please note that these are mass production bullion strikes supplied loose in tubes – coins may have existing contact or surface marks from minting and transport. A visual inspection of random samples shows the minting quality to be very high on these coins, however due to the tube packaging, coins are in contact with each other during transit, so if you are seeking MS69/MS70 grade coins, the prevalence of this grade coin will be much lower for this issue compared to the Perth Mint’s higher premium individually encapsulated bullion coin program.
