Royal Australian Mint at Art in Coins

A lively Tasmanian Devil is shown catching its prey – in skeletal form. This stunning 2020 $5 silver proof coin is part of a three-coin series showcasing Australia’s most deadly animals. Tasmanian Devils are the world’s largest surviving marsupial carnivores. They were named for the terrifying screams, growls and coughs that they utter when gathering to feed. A fascinating gift for the collectors and nature lover in your life.

The notorious Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) used to be found throughout Australia, but they are now limited only to Tasmania. A stocky nocturnal animal, the Tasmanian Devil can measure up to 30cm at the shoulder. They have black fur with a distinctive patch of white on the chest. Tasmanian Devils can be found in eucalypt forest, scrublands, woods and pasture, where they hunt or scavenge for animal prey, usually wallabies, possums and wombats.
