The latest silver Proof in the popular Deadly & Dangerous series focuses in on the fascinating bluebottle, otherwise known as the Pacific man-o-war. A must-have for fans of the deep blue and collectors alike, this spectacularly struck silver legal tender is a must for its colourful design and exclusivity!

A common sight on Australian beaches, the bluebottle is not one animal, but a complex floating colony of four different organisms! A single frilled and beaded fishing tentacle hangs beneath the colony to catch prey. Otherworldly and mesmarising whilst riding the waves – they can deliver a nasty sting, injecting venom intotheir prey via their tentacles. The Pacific man-o-war, in all its amazing detail, has been accurately recreated in 1oz of PURE 99.9% SILVER on a 40.90mm reverse. Floating serenely above spectacularly struck fish and coral, and true to its name, the vivid blues of the ‘bluebottle’ have been brilliantly captured with state-of-the-art Digital Colour minting.

With a strictly limited mintage of only 2,500 coins, underpinned by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity,!
