Description

The oceanic zone is divided into three sections. The epipelagic zone, which is also known as the Daylight zone and receives enough sunlight to support photosynthesis; the mesopelagic zone, which is also known as the Twilight zone and only has a scarce amount of light; the bathypelagic, or Midnight zone which makes up 90% of the ocean and no light penetrates its boundaries.

The range of animals amongst the three zones is diverse and, especially in the lower zones, quite unusual. There are three coins in the series each representing a different zone and featuring the creatures that live in them.

  • Daylight Zone – features a dolphin breaking the surface of the water with a Cod Icefish, a Patagonian Toothfish and some Krill swimming below.
  • Twilight Zone – displays images of a Barreleye fish, a Comb Jelly, a Lantern fish and a Snipe Eel.
  • Midnight Zone – features an Angler fish, a Jellyfish, a Spookfish and a Vampire Squid.

The coins will also be available in Proof Sterling Silver and Blue Titanium. Each coin is produced to the highest quality and struck four times to produce a stunning “proof” finish.
