Sales History

This Sea Horse piece was released in 2010 as part of the Perth mint's Sea Life series. The series celebrates some of Australia's most unique reef dwelling species. The reverse of this particular coin features a coloured depiction of the Clown Fish with the legend 'AUSTRALIAN SEA LIFE - THE REEF' and 'SEAHORSE'. The obverse houses the Ian Rank-Broadley portrait of HM Queen Elizabeth II with the legend 'ELIZABETH II - AUSTRALIA - 50 CENTS - 1/2 OZ 999 SILVER - 2010.'

The seahorse is an interesting variety of fish found in temperate and tropical waters throughout the world. (The Seahorse Trust, 2017) They have long thin snouts and heads similarly shaped to a horse. Their bodies are upright with a small curled tail that can be used to cling onto coral or sea weed preventing them from being pulled away on the oceans currents. Seahorses are monogamous creatures, pairing for life and engaging in complex courtship displays.
