Humpback whales are a true natural treasure. These massive beasts could not support their own weight and survive on land, but in the waters of the world’s oceans and seas they are graceful, albeit slow, creatures. The humpback whale, given its size, was pushed to the brink of extinction in 1966.
A popular target of the whaling industry prior to 1966, the modern-day population of 80,000 is proof the species has recovered. However, it still faces threats from entanglements with fishing gear, collisions with ships, and noise pollution. Fortunately, there’s not harm to the whales in you owning their beautiful effigy on these 1 oz Silver Monarch Whale Rounds.
On the obverse of each Monarch Whale Round is the image of a humpback whale as it leaps out of the water. The humpback whale can grow to a length of 52 feet and weigh as much as 79,000 lbs. Each whale travels an estimated 16,000 miles each year from polar waters where it feeds to tropical and subtropical waters for breeding.
The reverse of the 1 oz Silver Monarch Whale Round features an idyllic coastal retreat. The rocky outcrop in the foreground houses a lighthouse, with a seagull flying overhead. In the distant background, the sun sets over the ocean waters as a single whale is visible retreating back beneath the waves.
All 1 oz Silver Monarch Whale Rounds ship inside of blue gift boxes with a full-color presentation card and a box sleeve. Within the blue gift boxes, the Silver Monarch Whale Round is packaged inside of an air-tight plastic capsule. The rounds all have an antique polish which has been hand brushed onto the surface to bring the fine details within the design to life on the surface.
