Comments

Third coin in the Perth Mint's Australian Megafauna series.

Megalania refers to an extinct giant goanna or monitor lizard, recognised as either Megalania prisca or Varanus priscus. They were part of the megafaunal assemblage that inhabited southern Australia during the Pleistocene. The youngest fossil remains dated to around 50,000 years ago. The first aboriginal settlers of Australia might have encountered them and been a factor in their extinction.
