Coin Story

Phoneutria, commonly known as Brazilian wandering spiders, armed spiders ("armadeiras", as they are known in Portuguese), or banana spiders (not to be confused with the relatively harmless Nephila), are a genus of defensive and venomous spiders of potential medical significance to humans. They are mainly found in tropical South America, with one species in Central America. These spiders are members of the Ctenidae family of wandering spiders.
The Brazilian wandering spiders appear in Guinness World Records from 2010 to present as the world's most venomous spider.

Reverse Design

The reverse captures the dangerous Brazilian Spider sitting on a leaf. The spider is depicted in full color and offsets itself from the silver proof background. The name of the series "Venomous Spiders" and the name of the spider "Brazilian Spider" are engraved into the coin.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the denomination of the coin "$1", the issuing country "Cook Islands" and the year of issue "2013".
