A Beautiful Proof From Out of the Blue

At 98 feet in length and weighing 199 tons, the Blue Whale is the largest animal to ever exist, the king of the ocean! They were nearly hunted to extinction by whalers until they were protected worldwide by the International Whaling Commission. Pobjoy Mint has commissioned a beautiful Proof coin struck in Blue Titanium! Official currency of South Georgia and Sandwich Islands, it is limited to just 7,500 pieces worldwide.

Each of these 2017 issues bears a striking resemblance to its 2013 predecessor, with a few key exceptions. The design, which is like its 2013 counterpart in that it features a female adult Blue Whale and her calf, has been significantly improved. The whales themselves are now right-facing and the design as a whole is substantially more detailed than the original. The design now shows the adult Blue Whale lifting its tail up out of the water, with the sun shining down from above and schools of fish swimming in the background.

Each coin is struck from Blue Titanium, an homage to the ‘Deep Blue Sea’, and will arrive encapsulated and in a its original government packaging.
