Quick Overview

Final Release in the Australian Sea Life coin series - Moray Eel Reverse Design

Details

The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1/2oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

The coin’s reverse portrays a Moray Eel in colour.  Contrary to the impression given by its snake-like body, long sharp teeth and open-mouth, the Moray Eel is not an aggressive fish.  Although capable of delivering a nasty bite, its mouth is generally open so that water can pass over its gills.

The coin’s reverse includes The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark.

Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin bears the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the 2010 year-date on the obverse.

No more than 10,000 of these coins will be released by The Perth Mint.

Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Like previous coins in this series, the Moray Eel coin is housed in a presentation case which comes in a colourfully illustrated shipper.  When lined-up in release order, the shippers form a linked image depicting all five inhabitants of the reef.
