The Mint of Poland is proud to present the last, 10th coin from the series “Endangered Animal Species”, devoted to the Blue whale – the biggest mammal of all times.
This unique coin reminds us how fragile is the beauty of animals being on the verge of disappearance. Blue whales were almost hunted to extinction by whalers attracted by their enormous size. These impressive marine mammals have been classified as critically endangered, and thanks to this decision their population is now slowly recovering.
The coin shows the exceptionality of the Blue whale with its vivid decorations. First of all, colorful animals depicted on the coin are extremely lifelike. This unique silver token is also embellished with SWAROVSKI ELEMENTS that imitates a magnifying glass (showing the regional distribution of the species). Besides, the coin is accompanied by an original presentation case, pleasantly decorated with the images of Blue whales.
