Product Overview
This 2013 $5 sterling silver coin features prismatic technology to create a unique perspective on the humpback whale, which has been protected as an endangered species since 1966.  With the use of prism technology, the brilliant colours change as the coin is moved in the light. The coin weighs just under three quarters of an ounce of sterling silver.

The humpback whale is a species of baleen whale. One of the larger rorqual species, adults range in length from 12 to 16 metres and weigh about 36,000 kilograms. It has a distinctive body shape, with long pectoral fins and a knobbly head, and it's also a powerful swimmer, using its massive tail fin to propel itself through the water and sometimes completely out of it. Humpbacks are the noisiest whales, with males "singing" for up to 15 minutes at a time. The sounds they make are the most varied in the animal kingdom, ranging from high-pitched squeals to low, rumbling gurgles. Only males sing and experts think they do it to attract females or to let other males know they're in the area.
