The Sea Otter is the last in a series of impossibly adorable polar babies struck on a silver coin
The coin's design The obverse of this 1/2 oz silver proof coin features an cute baby sea otter harp seal pup, resting in an icy winter landscape. Small snowflake detailing adds to the glacial atmosphere, and the selective colouring of the otter makes it stand out against the silvery-white landscape.
The image is beautifully detailed, with the otter's soft fur realised in stunning clarity - enough to make you want to reach out and stroke it!
The Sea Otter An endangered species, the sea otter is a marine mammal localised largely in the North Pacific Ocean. They survive on sea urchins, molluscs, fish, and crustaceans, and are the largest members of the weasel family.
