Graded PR-70 by PCGS
Mintage of only 10,000!
The fourth release in The Sea Life II five-coin series.
This 2011 Silver coin features a colorized Octopus, design 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.
The octopus can be found all around the coast of Australia. This marine species has two eyes, four pairs of arms and unusually, three hearts: and 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.
