      • Graced with a vivid design of Australia’s celebrated Eastern Brown Snake
      • Tiny worldwide mintage just 5,000 – sell-out assured
      • Struck by The Perth Mint for Tuvalu as official legal tender of $1
      • Set in a high-gloss timber case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
