After the successful sell-out of the 2013 issue of the Blue Whale by Pobjoy Mint, we are delighted to announce the release of a new 2017 Blue Titanium coin on behalf of the South Georgia and The Sandwich Islands Government which features the ever so popular Blue Whale once more.

Blue whales are the largest animals ever known to have lived on Earth. These magnificent marine mammals rule the oceans at up to 100 feet long and upwards of 200 tons. Their tongues alone can weigh as much as an elephant. Their hearts, as much as an automobile. They have a broad, flat head and a long, tapered body that ends in wide, triangular flukes.

They reach these mind-boggling dimensions on a diet composed nearly exclusively of tiny shrimplike animals called krill. During certain times of the year, a single adult blue whale consumes about 4 tons of krill a day.

Their colour is true blue underwater, but on the surface their colouring is more a mottled blue-gray. Their underbellies take on a yellowish hue from the millions of microorganisms that take up residence in their skin.
