It is found in the waters around the Antarctic continent from the near-shore to depths exceeding 600m.
It eats a wide variety of small invertebrates found on or near the sea floor including crustaceans, polychaete worms and hyrdozoans. In common with many Antarctic fish species, it produces antifreeze glycoproteins that allow them to occupy freezing habitats unavailable to most other fishes.
The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
Pobjoy Mint is pleased to announce the release of a stunning and unique Titanium coin on behalf of the British Antarctic Territory. The Barbeled Antarctic Plunderfish (Artedidraco skottsberg) is one of around 25 species of small predatory fish in the family Artedidraconidae that are found only in the Southern Ocean.
One of the more remarkable features of this particular fish is that its scales have UV properties which means that it glows brightly under UV light and it is the replication of this effect of the coin that makes it unique and very special. Produced in dark blue Titanium, the coin has undergone a further process to highlight some of the scales on the design with special ink so that the coin itself will glow in the dark.
Titanium reacts differently with every strike, so each Titanium Plunderfish coin is technically different and varies slightly in colour. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal.
