Australian waters host some of the most famous reef systems in the world.
From spectacular tropical corals to towering forests of kelp, these dynamic environments are teeming with aquatic life.
Celebrating five fascinating reef dwellers, this stunning collector series now includes a release portraying Leafy Sea Dragon.
This coin's design has a Leafy Sea Dragon in colour. With leaf-like appendages for camouflage, these beautiful fish display remarkable parenting behaviour. After the female develops her eggs, the male takes responsibility for incubating them under his tail. Between 30 and 40cm in length, Leafy Sea Dragons are endemic to temperate waters around southern Australia.
This 1/2oz silver proof coin has a limited mintage to only 10,000 coins.
The coin comes with a numbered certificate of authenticity and a presentation case which is stored in a colourful shipper.
