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.

  • The design on this coin features the Midnight Zone which shows an Angler fish, a Jellyfish, a Spookfish and a Vampire Squid in a stunning dark blue titanium finish.

To emphasise the amount of light in each zone and to differentiate the three coins, each coin is being produced in a different shade of blue titanium.

Titanium is exceptionally difficult to strike and because of the way the coloured Titanium reacts when striking, no Titanium coin is exactly the same. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal.

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