Intelligent, sleek and agile, the Australian Dingo is unmistakeably a beautiful creature - and a powerful predator. The latest addition to the popular Deadly & Dangerous series honours Australia's animal anti-hero with a majestic work of precious metal that's as exclusive as it is eye-catching.

Sensational, full-colour design!

With its vivid reverse design, the 2018 $1 Deadly & Dangerous Dingo 1oz Silver Proof immediately stands out from the pack. Photorealism is combined with a desert-inspired palette of warm, dusky reds and ochres that instantly transports you to the Australian outback. A magnificent dingo howls in the foreground, while another animal in the background appears in relief. This clever numismatic technique creates contrast and drama while demonstrating all the power and potential of a Perth Mint strike.

Strictly limited mintage

The dingo has been firmly entrenched in Australia's culture for thousands of years. Indigenous Australians had a symbiotic relationship with dingoes, with some even being buried with their canine companions! However, despite their popularity - and the mystery surrounding this enigmatic animal - just 5,000 of this coin have been issued worldwide. For an Aussie animal with international appeal, this seems like a gross underestimation of demand.

Struck to Perth Mint Perfection

The Perth Mint has the reputation as Australia's precious metal expert, and rightly so. The precious metal here - 99.99% pure silver - has been beautifully treated, crafted with individually-polished dies to create a flawless Proof strike.

An Australian icon: Deadly and Dangerous

Attacks on humans are rare, but the Australian Dingo has garnered a reputation as a creature to be respected. However, this iconic Australian canine is actually the one that's at risk. Cross-breeding with domestic dogs has meant that pure dingoes are becoming increasingly rare, granting them 'vulnerable' conservation status. Interestingly, many of the few deaths reported as a result of dingo attack have been attributed to dingo cross-breeds rather than to a genetically pure dingo. Only time will tell what the future holds for this majestic animal.

Stylish presentation
