The desert scorpion is officially known as the Urodacus yaschenkoi and it inhabits the arid deserts found throughout central Australia. This scorpion species is one of the largest on the Australian continent, with males reaching lengths in excess of 100 mm from the mouth to the tip of the stinger.


On the obverse of 2022 Royal Australian Mint Desert Scorpion 1 oz Silver Coins is an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is shown here in right-profile relief wearing the George IV State Diadem Crown. In this design, the Queen is captured at the age of 89. Jody Clark originally developed this design in 2015 for the Royal Mint and debuted at the Royal Australian Mint in 2018. The inscriptions on this face of the coin include ELIZABETH II, AUSTRALIA, 2022, and 1 DOLLAR.


The reverse side of the 2022 RAM Desert Scorpion Silver Coin comes with a depiction of the namesake creature. The desert scorpion is not only one of the largest species of scorpions on the Australian continent, but it also has a unique physical feature. These scorpions glow when exposed to ultraviolet light. This physical characteristic allows them to be easily spotted in the field by scientists.


The Australias Most Dangerous Series was introduced by the Royal Australian Mint in 2020. The first design in the collection was the Redback Spider. In the second release of the collection, the 2021 Great White Shark coin was released by the mint. The Desert Scorpion is the third issue in the series.


2022 Royal Australian Mint Desert Scorpion 1 oz Silver Coins are available in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. The coins in this release are available in protective plastic flips.
