This 2019 five dollar silver proof coin featuring black nickel and selective gold plating, honours one of Australia's lost species; the feisty little lesser bilby. Unlike the gentle surviving common bilby, the lesser bilby was a carnivore that had a notoriously fierce temperament. It lived in some of Australia's driest desert environments and was declared extinct in the 1950s
The Reverse design features both black nickel and selective gold plating depicting the Lesser Bilby in its harsh desert habitat.
Coin is presented in a presentation case and comes with a numbered certificate
