Product Description

Mintage 5,000

A spectacular addition to one of Australia's hottest coin  programs, we are delighted to present the latest in the Perth  Mint-struck Australian Extinct & Endangered Series – the 2013  $1 Tasmanian Devil 1oz Silver Proof!
Known for its powerful bite, loud, disturbing screech and  ferocious eating habits, the Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus  harrissi) is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world. Once  common across Australia, the Tasmanian Devil disappeared from  the mainland around 3,000 years ago, with the proliferation of  dingoes believed to be the key cause.
Found in the wild only in  the 'dingo-free' Apple Isle, and noted as scarce as far back as  the 1850s, the Tassie Devil population has suffered a massive  80% decline since the mid 1990s due to Devil Facial Tumour  Disease, and the species is listed as endangered.
Capturing the cute but ferocious nature of this fascinating  creature upon the broad 40mm flan, the 2013 $1 Tasmanian  Devil 1oz Silver Proof depicts Mortimer – a resident of the  Devils @ Cradle Tasmanian Devil Sanctuary, and sponsored by  Downies – along with his mate Fergy. A poignant legal tender  tribute, this stunning .999 fine silver coin is sure to catch the  eye of full-colour coin collectors worldwide, and is obviously a  must-have for those lucky enough to have secured either of its  predecessors.
With those predecessors – the 2011 $1 Tasmanian Tiger and  2012 $1 Tasmanian Wedge-Tailed Eagle 1oz Silver Proofs –  sold out at super speed, don't miss the chance to secure this  exclusive precious metal Proof at Official Issue Price!
