The Wasp Spider
The Wasp Spider is a very large, colourful spider that is a recent arrival in the UK from the continent and has slowly spread over the south of England. They build large orb webs in grassland and heathland, and attach their silk egg-sacs to the grasses. The web has a wide, white zig-zag strip running down the middle, known as a 'stabilimentum', the function of which is unclear. Mating is a dangerous game for males; they wait at the edge of the web until the female has moulted into a mature form, then take advantage of her jaws being soft and rush in to mate. However, many males still get eaten during this time.


The coin's reverse depicts a spectacular spider in the center of the coin, with an attractive coloration. The spider is yellow with black lines and awaits his prey quietly, on his spiderweb. In the right side of the reverse, the inscription: “Magnificent Life” – the name of the series. The coin's obverse depicts the effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the face value: “5 Dollars”, the issue country: “Cook Islands” and the issue year: “2016”.
