Described as the greatest piece of literature ever written in English we celebrate Moby Dick’s Sperm Whale with the release of a new coin commemorating the 165th anniversary of the publishing of Herman Melville’s Moby Dick.

The story, first published in London on October 18th 1851, tells the tale of the obsessive quest of Captain Ahab and the hunt for the albino Sperm Whale that destroyed his ship and severed his leg at the knee during a previous voyage. Whaling is, of course, the focus of Moby Dick, but it is said that this is simply a metaphor for existence. 

Design

The design on the coin features a sperm whale swimming in Antarctic waters with the sun shown setting behind the icebergs. The obverse of each coin features the new effigy design of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.  

Presentation

The Cupro Nickel coin is shipped in a unique Pobjoy Mint blue presentation pouch. The Silver version is encapsulated in an acrylic capsule for protection and housed in a stunning red box accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
