This coin highlights the beauty of Australia's most venomous snake.The Western Taipan (Oxyuranus microlepidotus) is also known as the Inland Taipan, Small-scaled Snake or Fierce Snake.

Western Taipans are found in the Channel country of south-western Queensland and adjacent areas of South Australia. The snakes prefer soils with deep cracks that allow them to shelter.

The notorious Tasmanian Devil (Scarophilus harrisii) used to be found throughout Australia, but they are now limited only to Tasmania. A stocky nocturnal animal, the Tasmanian Devil can measure up to 30cm at the shoulder. They have black fur with a distinctive patch of white on the chest. Tasmanian Devils can be found in eucalypt forest, scrub lands, woods and pastures, where they hunt or scavenge for animal prey, usually wallabies, possums and wombats.

The deadly Australian Saltwater Crocodile is captured in a new and intricate form on this 2020 $5 silver proof coin. The delicate details of the crocodile's skeletal system reveals the strength and beauty of this remarkable animal. The Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), also known as the Estuarine Crocodile, is the largest of all living reptiles.
