The 2018 $1 1oz Silver Proof Coin is one of the most beautiful New Zealand coins we’ve seen this year. A mother Sperm Whale and her calf glide through crystal-clear waters against a backdrop of the majestic Kaikōura ranges. Struck from 99.9% pure silver, with blue enamel embellishment, this exclusive coin is a visual feast.

Sperm Whales feed on squid, octopus and fish, using echolocation to locate their prey. They can dive as deep as 9,500 feet – that’s nearly 2,900m – in search of a meal! Once mature, females will remain in the pods that they were born into. Meanwhile, males may either form a group with other males of a similar age, or live solo.

Scientists know that Sperm Whales have the largest brains of any animal in existence – but there’s much that remains unknown about this beautiful creature. This sense of mystery is echoed in the coin’s stunning design. Below the surface of the water, the mother and calf share a private moment of bonding. A flawless Proof strike is the perfect finishing touch.

Each coin is set within a decorative acrylic block within a premium case, guaranteeing a breathtaking presentation. But limited to a mintage of just 1,500 coins, don’t miss your chance – click ‘add to cart’ now!
