The 2017 Southern Right Whale Silver Coin Coin Quality

The Southern Right Whale invests the summer in the far Southern Ocean close to Antarctica where it feeds. In winter the species does move north however some have been understood to spend their winter in Sub-Antarctic regions as well. The overall population of the species is approximated to be around 10,000 individuals.

These whales grow to be large in size and an adult female can measure up to 17m in length. They are distinguishable by a few key characteristics which are the callouses on its head, broad backs with no dorsal fins and long arching mouths. The male Southern Right Whale holds the world record for the largest testicles of any animal, every one weighing around 500kg!

Pobjoy Mint have released a sensational coin perfectly recording this majestic mammal. As these whales populate the oceans surrounding the British Antarctic Territory, it was fitting the coin must be released on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory Government. The issue limit will be 10,000 in Uncirculated Cupro Nickel and 2,000 in Proof Sterling Silver. The obverse includes the Pobjoy unique effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II in extraordinary detail.
