The coin is struck by The Perth Mint from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.
The coin’s reverse depicts a dual design of a mature killer whale and calf in colour under the sea, and a struck design showing an adult leaping from an ocean of floating icebergs. The background incorporates the outline of the Antarctic continent bordered by the inscriptions 2011 – KILLER WHALE and ‘Australian Antarctic Territory’. The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark is also incorporated into the design.
No more than 7,500 of these coins will be issued by The Perth Mint.
Issued as legal tender under the Australian Currency Act 1965, the coin’s obverse depicts the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.
Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
The coin is housed in a charcoal-coloured presentation case, which comes within a stylish outer shipper.
The eighth coin from this amazingly popular series features the majestic orca or killer whale.
The killer whale is a toothed whale belonging to the oceanic dolphin family. Killer whales have sophisticated social structures, hunting techniques and vocal behaviours, which are passed across generations.
