This is the fifth release in the Shades of Nature series featuring the Sun-gazer or giant girdled lizard.  Named after the iconic dragon Smaug of J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit, the sun-gazer is native to South Africa.

The coin is an archetypal Shades of Nature issue, with a gold plated proof field and an astonishingly detailed Sun-gazer Lizard struck in Smartminting© high relief. The scales are treated with a micro-minting surface finish to bring out the incomparable shine and radiance not found on ordinary strikes.
