With a lean, agile body and enterprising mind, the Dingo is a deadly predator.
The brand-new 2018 $1 Deadly & Dangerous - Dingo 1oz Silver Proof Coin pays tribute to the animal in stunning 99.99% pure silver - and deftly captures the beauty and power of one of Australia's most enigmatic creatures.
Dingoes are deeply embedded within Australian culture, and have been for thousands of years. Indigenous Australians were sometimes even buried with their canine companions! They're famous both here and abroad: an estimated 500,000 tourists are drawn to Fraser Island annually, where Australia's purest Dingo population resides.
The photo-realistic reverse design is not only striking in its realism, but is considered in its choice of colour. With the warm gold and dusky russet tones of this image, we're immediately transported to the Australian Outback: dry and unforgiving, but hauntingly beautiful. The howling animal is given pride of place in the foreground. In a visual twist, another appears in the background, but in relief.
Struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.99% pure silver, only 5,000 coins will be released worldwide!
