The first coin from this remarkable new series features the iconic Frilled Neck Lizard. When this unique creature feels threatened, it extends the frill around its neck like an open umbrella. Frilled Neck Lizards are members of the dragon family that live in the tropical and warm temperate forests and woodlands of northern Australia. They spend most of their lives in the trees, but descend occasionally to feed on ants and small lizards.
