With its semi-prehistoric appearance, impressive set of teeth and reputation for being a man-eater, the crocodile is one of the most feared yet fascinating of creatures on our planet. With special appeal for animal lovers and coin collectors of all ages, the Crocodile is the third glow-in-the-dark coin in our dramatic 12-piece Colourful Creatures series of 3 euro coins featuring a glowing selection of animals that show just how wonderful nature is. 

The luminous nature of the coins mean that children can continue to enjoy them after they have gone to bed, but the series also serves an educational purpose by helping to bring the animals featured on the coins to life. The reverse of the coin features a crocodile in colour lying on a sandbank in front of a landscape featuring mangroves and a pair of flamingoes, while the obverse of the coin features a representation in silhouette of all 12 animals in the series. The first ever Austrian 3 euro coins, Colourful Creatures are legal tender in Austria and will be issued every three months over the next three years.
