Heavily hunted during the industrial whaling period in the first half of the 20th Century, Fin whales were severely depleted across the world. With an end to commercial whaling, Fin whale populations are thought to be in recovery and the species is now considered vulnerable by the IUCN. However, there is a lack of information on population size, especially at mid-latitudes in the Southern Hemisphere which highlights the need for more research and detailed surveys on this magnificent creature. The whale is listed under Appendix I and II of the Convention of Migratory Species which is an environmental treaty that provides a global platform for the conservation of migratory species throughout their ranges. Through sustained international conservation and research efforts, hopefully the recovery of whale populations will continue and they will be safe for many years to come. The obverse of the coin carries the exclusive Pobjoy Mint effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Due to the difficulty of striking Titanium coins and the fact that Titanium reacts differently with every strike, each coin is technically different from all others making each coin one-of-a-kind. There is also a lined effect that is present on the coins which is unique to this metal. Show more
