Description

The Royal Australian Mint has released a stunning collectable coin series 'Australia's Most Dangerous'.

This new series of coins includes - The Tasmanian Devil, The Feared Western Taipan and the deadly Australian Saltwater Crocodile.

Saltwater Crocodile

The Saltwater Crocodile, also known as the Estuarine Crocodile, is the largest of all living reptiles. Identified by their broad snouts, powerful jaws and heavily armoured bodies, they can be found throughout tropical regions of Asia and the Pacific. Saltwater Crocodiles are capable of travelling long distances and have been spotted at seas, far from land. They are large creatures with adult males around 4-5 metres in length.

Saltwater Crocodiles will eat any creature that they are able to catch, and with their predatory nature, larger specimens can be a danger to humans.
Although they are a top predator, Saltwater Crocodiles have been a protected species since the 1970s.
