Mintage of only 4,500!
The second release in new heart-warming series. This coin features a colorized elephant calf locking trunks with its mother surrounded by jungle palms. The inscription ASIAN ELEPHANT and The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark also appear in the design. The Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination are shown on the obverse. Each Silver coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper along with a numbered CoA.
Displaying a special bond, the mother and her calf move together among other related females and their young, under the direction of a matriarch. The mother dedicates all of her time and love to her calf, and will only give birth again after her first born has been weaned. Highly protective, and ever conscious of her baby’s wellbeing, an Asian elephant mother will charge fiercely at any threat to her young calf.
Future releases include: Giraffe, Bear, and Orangutan.
