The obverse of the 2023 Colorized Proof Royal Australian Mint Desert Scorpion 1 oz Silver Coin showcases the final effigy of Her Majesty, designed by Jody Clark. This depiction shows her in right-profile relief donning the Royal Diadem. Surrounding her are identifying marks of the coin. These marks include ELIZABETH II, 1952-2022, AUSTRALIA 2023, 5 DOLLARS, and JC.


On the reverse, a fearsome Desert Scorpion is displayed in full color. The background features the sun rising with its rays shining on the scorpion and the desert landscape. Inscriptions read DESERT SCORPION, and 1 OZ .999 SILVER.


Desert Scorpions, among the largest on the continent, have adapted to survive the scorching desert heat by burrowing up to 39 inches deep into the sand. While they’re part of the Australia’s Most Dangerous Series, they can also be found in some pet stores throughout the continent.
