The Royal Australian Mint proudly presents the third release in its Australia’s Most Dangerous series – the Australian Desert Scorpion.

The Australian Desert Scorpion takes its place among the Red Back Spider and Great White Shark in the Australia’s Most Dangerous series by the Royal Australian Mint. Found across Australia’s arid deserts, the scorpion endures scorching temperatures and is known for its aggressive nature and large size. While its sting is not known to be fatal to humans, its likely to be a painful reminder to respect these hardy creatures.

This feared creature, while nocturnal and often found in remote parts of Australia, is known to be large and aggressive and can inflict a painful sting to human.

Occupying much of Australia’s arid deserts, the Australian Desert Scorpion endures scorching temperatures by digging spiralling burrows up to a metre deep. This spiral formation allows the scorpion to regulate the temperature of its environment.

Known to grow up to 12 centimetres long the Australian Desert Scorpion uses its powerful pincers to capture and hold its prey, before stinging it with its poisonous tail.
