2017 Great Migrations - Humpback Whale 1oz Silver Proof Coin

Availability: Sold Out

Code: 1262

Humpback whales arguably make the longest documented migration of any mammal. They spend their summer months feeding in polar waters, but with the onset of winter, food becomes scarce and the water becomes too cold. So, they migrate an average of 2,500km to tropical waters to breed and give birth, then make the same journey back.

With almost no rest along the way, they can cover over 1,600km per month. Young calves making their first migratory journey conserve their energy by riding the slipstream of their mother's wake.

The coins reverse shows an engraved illustration of a pod of Humpback whales, gliding gracefully through the ocean. A few whales have been highlighted in colour, bringing further interest.

This stunning coin comes in a compact printed rectangular coin case, which incorporates an impressive, printed scene of this great migration. The uniquely numbered Certificate of Authenticity is included in the packaging.

The New Zealand Mint will release no more than 3,000 of the 2017 Great Migrations Humpback Whale 1oz Silver Proof Coin.
