The Royal Australian Mint’s proud collaboration with Australia Zoo continues with this exciting new high relief silver proof coin.
Agro Junior, the son of the Crocoseum’s cold-blooded, but loving couple, Agro and Cookie, is now captured in unprecedented detail.
Whether you call it the saltwater crocodile, the estuarine crocodile or crocodylus porosus, it is the largest reptile roaming the earth today.
Lurking in dark and murky waters around the northern areas of Australia, they can surprise and terrify a wide range of prey. Anything that flies, swims or roams in its watery region is fair game for this formidable creature.
Since 1988, 37 year-old Agro has lived in the comfort of Australia Zoo’s Crocoseum. This 15 foot wonder was captured from the wild to protect him from the hunters who were stalking his Cattle Creek home. Not only did he find a new home, but he found love with Cookie, a ten-foot lady crocodile who is the calmest and gentlest of crocs in the enclosure.
Agro and Cookie raised a son, Agro Junior, the star of this new collectable coin.
The Royal Australian Mint will release no more than 1,500 of the 2015 Australian Crocodiles Agro Junior High Relief Silver Coin.
