Proudly presenting the newest member of a very distinguished group! The latest addition to the much-celebrated Australia at Night series is none other than the fabulous flying fox - one of the continent’s most iconic nocturnal inhabitants!

Eye-catching, exclusive and precious, the 2023 $100 Flying Fox 1oz Gold Proof is not to be missed. A legal tender window into the fascinating world of this important Aussie animal, the impeccable Proof quality design shines a light on the flying fox in splendid detail, with the eye-catching interplay of 99.99% GOLD and 99.95% PLATINUM. The only true mammal capable of flight, the flying fox hails from the fruit bat family. There are 4 species of flying fox native to mainland Australia, migratory animals, they can be found in northern and eastern temperate climates and sub-tropical coastal areas. The flying fox is one of the largest species of bats with a wingspan that can reach up to 1.5 metres. Viewed from up-close, this ‘mega bat’ is disarmingly cute, with a petite canine-like face, large expressive eyes and impressive, leathery wings – all beautifully rendered in this spectacular coin.

Truly worthy of its place in one of our most important collections, the flying fox is crucial to maintaining the health of Australian native forests by spreading pollen and seeds and ensuring cross pollination. Intelligent and highly social, these animals are extremely vocal and can be spotted in many suburban areas roosting in large numbers – with hundreds, or even
thousands, hanging upside down from tops of trees.

Essential for a complete collection, only 150 exquisite examples are available worldwide! Immaculately presented in a lavish case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity, the 2023 $100 Flying Fox 1oz Gold Proof will not ‘hang around’ long, upside down or otherwise, buy yours now!
