On the reverse of the coin, the eye of the green mamba, a highly venomous snake common in Africa, stares straight at you. Special technology has been used to create the appearance of the real eye – the eye is convex and the snake’s scales have mini relief.
The design and embossing solutions and the UV varnish technology used make it look as if the snake is looking straight at you.
The obverse of the coin features a portrait of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
The coin is sold in a capsule, which comes in special packaging, a booklet. A spectacular design solution was found and implemented for the packaging.
