The Colossal Squid has long been a creature from a sailor’s nightmare, appearing in folklore throughout the ages it has often been synonymous with the Kraken. A mighty beast notorious for dragging unwary men to their doom and emitting a foul stench that escapes from its lungs with each breath.

In reality, the Colossal Squid or Mesonychoteuthis hamiltoni is not as ‘foul’ as the reputation that precedes it, but there is some truth to the legends. A feud exists between the Colossal Squid and the Sperm Whale who battle on an epic scale in the deep blue. Sperm whales are found covered in scars on their backs from the beaks of this squid and the beaks are found in large quantities inside the whale’s stomachs.

The design on the coin shows a colossal squid swimming in the sea surrounded by an eddy of water. Part of the squid’s mantle appears above the water line. The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.
