Product Information

 

Proof Quality 99.9% Pure Silver

The coin is struck from 1oz of 99.9% pure silver in proof quality.

Coloured Reverse Design

The central design, which appears within the outline of Antarctica, depicts a Humpback Whale and an icy landscape.  As well as the inscription HUMPBACK WHALE : 2008, the reverse includes the words ‘Australian Antarctic Territory’ and The Perth Mint’s traditional ‘P’ mintmark.

Australian Legal Tender

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.

Presentation Packaging

The coin is housed in a blue-coloured presentation case, which comes within a stylish outer shipper, accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.

Limited Mintage

No more than 7,500 individual 1oz Humpback Whale silver coins will be released by The Perth Mint.

The fifth release from The Perth Mint's popular Australian Antarctic Territory Series depicts a Humpback Whale.  Journeying each year between Antarctic waters and favoured mating grounds inside the Great Barrier Reef and near the Kimberley coast, Humpbacks are an awe-inspiring sight.
