2014 $1 Bright Bugs Series – Red Bull Ant Uncirculated Coin in Card

The Bright Bugs series continues with the reckless and ruthless Red Bull Ant. This new coin is ideal for people who appreciate the hidden beauty that dwells in our natural world. Kids, nature lovers and those who love something ‘a little different’ will find it fun, educational and enlightening in more ways than one.Wanted : Red Bull Ant, alias ‘giant bulldog ant’, alias ‘Hoppy Joe’. Last seen in its natural habitat of south east Queensland and New South Wales.

Believed to be dwelling in elaborate underground nests and two to three guard ants serving as loyal bouncers.

This ant is alleged to be the ringleader of a ruthless food network : extracting liquids from bees and other ants, and feeding the leftovers to its larvae.

Be on the lookout for its bright yellow mandibles and reddish-brown head and thorax. If seen, the Red Bull Ant should be considered venomous : one sting from its tail can result in three days of pain and swelling.The Red Bull Ant is the sixth and final coin in the six-coin series.

Packaged in a full colour card with a picture of the bug against it’s intricate nest system.
