- The Crayfish glows in the dark !
The twelfth and final issue of the successful animal-thaler-series from Austria is dedicated to the crayfish. The outstanding special feature of this twelve-part series is that the animals which are shown on the coins all become nocturnal. The animal motive is highlighted in color and printed with fluorescent colors, so that the animals glow in the dark.
The motive of this final coin features a crayfish in the deep water. The obverse of the 3 Euro coin features the silhouettes of all 12 animals in the series - bat, tiger, crocodile, kingfisher, wolf, parrot, shark, owl, frog, turtle, otter and crayfish - with various types of vegetation, stars, the moon and a wolf’s paw print. The mintage of this special coin is limited to only 50,000 pieces.
