Description

Manta Rays are incredibly majestic creatures of the blue and as a tribute to their immense size yet graceful nature Pobjoy Mint is proud to release this awesome coin in both Titanium and Cupro Nickel. The design shows a Manta Ray skimming above the coral covered ocean floor followed by a group of Remoras. The denomination shown is £2.

The obverse features the Pobjoy exclusive effigy design of HM Queen Elizabeth II in exceptional detail. As Titanium reacts differently with every strike each of the 7,500 Titanium coins are technically different and vary slightly in colour. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal.

Manta Rays are found circumtropically in warm, temperate waters and are large rays with triangular pectoral fins, horn-shaped cephalic fins and gaping forward-facing mouths. They are pelagic filter feeders that consume large quantities of Zooplankton which they collect by swimming mouth-open through the water.

Manta Rays are gentle giants that, despite their huge size, (up to 7m across!!) pose no risk to humans. This is in contradiction to Sting Rays which can deliver a nasty sting. Humans in fact are the greatest risk to the Rays and they are now considered vulnerable due to overfishing. They often get tangled in nets as they are unable to swim backwards. Once entangled, they drown due to their constant requirement  of flushing oxygen rich water over their gills.
