Mintage of only 10,000!
The fourth release in the Sea Life II five-coin series, this 2011 Proof Silver Octopus coin features a colorized octopus, designed by Wade Robinson. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse in beautiful Proof finish.
Each Silver coin is housed in a display case with a certificate of authenticity and a stunningly illustrated coral reef shipper. Each shipper joins with the other shippers in the series to create a superbly illustrated underwater scene.
The octopus can be found all around the coast of Australia. This marine species has two eyes, four pairs of arms and three hearts. It has no internal or external skeleton, allowing it to squeeze through tight places. The octopus is among the most intelligent of all invertebrates and if threatened will hide, flee, expel ink, or use color-changing camouflage. They have a short life span of between six months and five years, depending on the species.
