White whales are actually referred to scientifically as the beluga whale, an Arctic and sub-Arctic species of cetacean. These marine mammals are referred to as simply beluga, melonhead, sea canary, or occasionally white whale. The use of sea canary refers to the high-pitched twitter the creatures use in communication with one another.
All Privateer Series silver rounds, including the 2 oz Elemetal Silver The White Whale Round, are dynamic ultra-high-relief rounds, and are produced by striking silver blanks numerous times under immense pressure, giving the design fields a 3D look and feel.
On the reverse of the 2 oz Elemetal White Whale Silver Round you’ll find the common design theme used on the reverse of all rounds in the collection. In this design you’ll notice a human skull set against a backdrop of a ship’s wheel. The pirate motto “No Prey, No Pay” is found above the design, with the round’s weight, metal content, and purity struck below.
The obverse of the 2 oz Elemetal White Whale Privateer Series Silver Round includes its own unique design. You’ll notice the commonly used privateer’s ship rocking violently in the waves as a massive white whale crests the water’s surface with harpoons sticking out from its body. Pay close attention, and you’ll notice the reverse design elements on the flag flying from the stern of the ship.
