Coin Story

The Saltwater Crocodile is the sixth animal to feature in our Kings of the Continents coin collection, which portrays some of the most dominant and revered animals on each continent.

Saltwater Crocodiles (Crocodylus porosus), or "salties" as Australians affectionately refer to them, are the largest of all living reptiles. Males of this species can reach sizes up to 6m in length and exceed weights of 1,000 kg. Females are much smaller and often don’t surpass 3m.

As its name implies, this species of crocodile can live in marine environments, but usually resides in saline mangrove swamps, estuaries, lagoons, and lower stretches of rivers. They are excellent swimmers and have often been spotted far out at sea.

A formidable and opportunistic predator, it feeds on a wide variety of prey. It is a large headed species with a heavy set of jaws, which can exert a pressure of several tons. Most prey are ambushed and then drowned or swallowed whole. It is capable of prevailing over almost any animal that enters its territory, including humans. Due to its size, aggression and distribution, Saltwater Crocodiles are regarded as the most dangerous living crocodilian.
