2012 Mexican Redknee Tarantula Spider Silver Proof Coin Niue BOX CERT PKG NEW
This is the first coin from the “Venomous Spiders” series. 6 more future releases will be forthcoming totaling 7 in the Spider series. The entire collection is dedicated to spiders and the venom they produce. Only 1,000 were minted which is very unusual these days. For many reasons most new coin mintages are usually made in quantities of 5,000 and up. So if you like Spiders and rare coins THIS would absolutely be a great collection to start. The first coin released typically becomes the most valuable. LIMITED – ONLY 1,000 MINTED. Capsule, box and certificate. The Brachypelma smithi (also called Mexican Red-kneed Tarantula), is a terrestrial tarantula native to the western faces of the Sierra Madre Occidental and Sierra Madre del Sur mountain ranges in Mexico. They are quite large, very docile and believed to be one of the most long-lived tarantulas found anywhere.
