The Eastern Brown Snake is fast-moving and aggressive. The venom that the Brown Snake carries is said to be the second most toxic venom of all land snakes worldwide. Considered dangerous to man, bites from this species of snake have caused death within minutes, with even a juvenile potentially delivering enough venom in a single bite to kill 20 adults. The Eastern Brown Snake grows to an average length of around 1.4 metres but has been found at 2.4 metres. Capturing the aggressiveness of this lethal reptile upon the 40.6mm flan, this flawless Silver Proof is a must-have for all colour coin collectors.
