The Gold Saltwater Crocodile coins from the Perth Mint have quickly established themselves as among the most popular bullion coins available to precious metals investors. With the Perth Mint’s reputation for producing high quality investment-grade coins, investors know that they’re getting the best coins for their money.
The reverse of the coin features an image of the Australian saltwater crocodile, perhaps the largest and most dangerous reptile in the world. With some specimens weighing in at over one ton, these crocodiles are able to use their explosive speed to attack both animals and humans that get too close to them. They have become a symbol for the wild and raw nature of much of the Australian wilderness.
The obverse of this coin features the Ian Rank-Broadley image of Queen Elizabeth II.
Since these 2017 coins are no longer being produced, these are the last ones available for you to invest in. They won’t last forever, so be sure to act now in order to add these beautiful gold coins to your precious metals investment portfolio.
