The Majestic Beauty of the Humpback Whale, Captured in 99.9% Pure Silver!
Amidst the deep, beautiful blue of the southern oceans are some of the most magnificent and gigantic whales in the world. These fascinating mammals spend their lives entirely in the water, yet need oxygen from above the surface to live. They rely on sound, not sight, to navigate their way through the deep. Their size makes them intimidating, but their gentle and playful nature inspires awe by those lucky enough to encounter them in person. Once frighteningly endangered in the early 20th century, these creatures are now seeing a beautiful resurgence.
Now you can add one of the most graceful of these whales to your own collection with this 2016 Humpback Whale of the Southern Ocean Silver Proof. Struck by the New Zealand Mint in one ounce of 99.9% pure silver, this proof shows the acrobat of the ocean in crisp detail. Not only do humpback whales perform some of the most interesting above-surface maneuvers imaginable, they're also one of the most musical! A typical humpback "song" can last from 10-20 minutes, be heard from more than 20 miles away and be repeated continuously for hours at a time -- sounds that you can imagine as you see this proof's humpback swim against the vivid backdrop of a crisp blue ocean. Take a look at the other side of this proof and you'll find the profile of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II along with the two dollar denomination of this legal tender Pitcairn Islands coin. (Appropriate, since it's said the waters off the coast of this isolated HMS Bounty refuge are some of the bluest in the world!)
Your 2016 Humpback Whale of the Southern Ocean Silver Proof will come to you in special New Zealand Mint packaging, including an acrylic coin case, colorful box and numbered certificate of authenticity. Don't wait too long to get yours -- with only 2,000 of these proofs available, we can see them quickly swimming away from our vaults! Float one to your cart now!
