Australia's Most Dangerous - Western Taipan 1oz Silver Proof

The feared Western Taipan is featured in its elegant skeletal form on this 2020 $5 silver proof coin. Part of a three-coin series: ‘Australia’s Most Dangerous’, 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. Feared due to having the most toxic venom of any terrestrial snake, Western Taipans are actually placid, and rarely-encountered. 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.
