Mintage of only 10,000!
The 2010 Proof Silver Leafy Sea Dragon coin, which is second in a five-coin series, features a colorized Leafy Sea Dragon with leaf-like appendages. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse. Each coin is housed in a presentation case which comes in a colorfully illustrated box-shipper. When lined-up in release order, the shipper illustrations form a linked image depicting all five reef creatures, also accompanied by a numbered CoA.
The leaf-like appendages are for camouflage. These beautiful fish display remarkable parenting behavior. After the female develops her eggs, the male takes responsibility for incubating them under his tail. Between 30 and 40 cm in length, Leafy Sea Dragons are endemic to temperate waters around southern Australia.
