2012 $1 Young Collectors Animal Athletes – Rhinoceros Beetle Unc Coin in Card.

The fearsome appearance of the Rhino Beetle, along with the loud hissing sound they produce when stressed, all add to the insect’s reputation as one fierce fighter, and relative to its size, is one of the world’s weightlifting wonders.

With its legendary strength, it is claimed that the Rhinoceros Beetle can lift between 100 to 850 times its own weight. Compare this to human who can generally lift up to twice their own weight. Scientists believe that the beetle’s strength has evolved to enable it to forage through heavy litter on the jungle floor and dig its way to safety. Using it’s horns, it can also dig its way out of a sticky situation by burying itself underground, escaping danger.

The Rhino Beetle undergoes an incredible metamorphosis through three stages, from larva to pupa and adult imago.

They are among the largest beetles, reaching 6 centimetres long. No wonder this battling bug is the weightlifting champion of the insect world.

The coin’s reverse portrays two Rhino Beetles set against a coloured rainforest background. The Perth Mint’s P Mintmark and denomination are also incorporated.
