This circulating commemorative dollar coin is part of the The Great Aussie Coin Hunt 2 campaign - a series of 26 different $1 coins where each features a letter of the English alphabet and an Australian symbol starting with that letter. The coin for the letter W features the Witchetty Grub.
W is for the Witchetty Grub - a creepy crawly of the outback. This squirming grub (also spelled as witchety grub or witjuti grub) makes its home in tree roots found predominantly in the Northern Territory but also in parts of South Australia and Western Australia. Grubs aren’t usually at the top of many menus, but are recognised as an important bush tucker item by Indigenous Australians. Aboriginal communities have also been known to grind the grubs and use the paste to help heal injuries, burns and other wounds. High in protein, their taste has been likened to scrambled eggs when cooked, or a cross between chicken and prawn eaten raw.
