A group of snake species found on multiple continents, pythons are most often ambush predators who camouflage themselves against the landscape before pouncing on their prey, gripping them with hooked fangs, and gripping them within muscular coils. One of the most extraordinary such species is the black-headed python from northern Australia, whose matte-black head is often all that can be seen as it conceals itself within and beneath the rocks. Its distinctive head not only makes it an effective nocturnal hunter, but also helps the reptile to manage its body heat by soaking up the sun’s rays in the early hours of the morning. This fiercely unique and beautiful snake is paid tribute by the 2022 Palau Hunters By Night Python 2 oz Silver Coin, the latest entry in the Hunters By Night coin series, now available from Provident Metals.


  • Arrives in a presentation case with a Certificate of Authenticity!
  • Issued in 2022, third in the Hunters By Night series!
  • Limited mintage of only 888 pieces!
  • Contains 2 Troy oz of .999 pure silver with an obsidian-black proof finish.
  • Face value of $10, backed by the Republic of Palau.
  • Obverse side features an emblem of Palau.
  • Reverse side features an ultra high-relief python’s-head medallic sculpture.

The 2022 Palau Hunters By Night Python Silver Coin echoes its source of inspiration with a stunning obsidian-black, proof-quality finish, and renders the python with stunningly realistic ultra high-relief artwork. It comes ready for display in a windowed box with a Certificate of Authenticity.


The coin’s obverse side features Palau’s “Rainbow’s End” emblem surrounded by silk-finish decorative touches that show the rocks of the Australian wilderness with a starry sky above. It is accompanied by the inscriptions “Republic of Palau,” “Hunters By Night,” and “10$.”


The reverse side features the python’s head in an obsidian black, ultra high-relief sculpture that matches the species’ true coloration. It seems to almost “emerge” from the coin’s surface with a flickering tongue, vivid red-gold eyes, its mighty coils forming the backdrop.


This coin is the product of SmartMinting technology that makes possible its dazzling obsidian-black, proof-quality finish and its silken decorative touches. It’s the third issue in the Republic of Palau’s widely popular Hunters By Night coin series, which has issued tributes to multiple remarkable species among the world’s nocturnal hunters. The first two entries featured the Black Panther and the Eagle Owl, and this collectible provides some of the most realistic detail yet in its rendering of the black-headed python, also known as the rock python and the tar pot snake.
