This is the second coin in the Australian Antarctic Territory (AAT) Series and depicts a coloured image of a leopard seal (Hydrurga leptonyx) and its pup. The coloured image of the leopard seals appears within the outline of Antarctica. Leopard seals occur exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere generally inhabiting pack-ice surrounding the Antarctic continent. These solitary predatory animals with spotted body markings also frequent larger sub-Antarctic islands including Australia's Heard and Macquarie Islands and have even been sighted in Tasmania.
As part of the Australian Antarctic Division’s scientific program researchers are studying the abundance and movement of leopard and other pack-ice seals to help monitor changes that occur in the region in response to global warming.
This 99.9% 1oz silver dollar is housed encapsulated in a dark blue leatherette hinged-lid presentation case accompanied by a numbered certificate of authenticity and protected in a colourful cardboard outer box.
