Orca Whales, also known as Killer Whales, are the largest of the dolphins and one of the world’s most powerful predators. Although they can be found in waters from the polar regions to the Equator, they usually frequent cold coastal waters. It is therefore most appropriate that this stunning new coin is being issued on behalf of the British Antarctic Terrtitory.

A typical Orca Whale distinctively bears a black back, white chest and sides and a white patch above and behind the eye. Calves are born with a yellowish or orange tint, which fades to white as they get older. Orca Whales are the largest existing members of the dolphin family with a male ranging from 6-8 metres/20 to 26ft long and weigh in excess of 6 tonnes. Orca whales are apex predators which means that they themselves have no natural predators. They are sometimes called the ‘wolves of the sea’ because they hunt in groups like wolf packs.

The design on the coin shows an adult female Orca with her calf swimming in the Antarctic waters with an iceberg in the background. Available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver, each precious metal coin has been carefully struck four times and feature frosted high relief sculpting against a mirror brilliant background. The obverse of the coin carries an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II by Ian Rank-Broadley FRBS.
