Description Technical Specs
2017 Tuvalu 50-cent Polar Babies - Harp Seal 1/2oz. Silver Proof (No Tax)

The fourth coin in the Polar Babies series features the fluffy harp seal.

Harp seal pups are famous for their bright, snowy white coats, which help them to blend into their surroundings, hiding them from predators and keeping them warm. When the pups reach three weeks of age, their fluffy white coat starts to moult, revealing a darker, silvery grey coloured fur.

Each coin is struck from 1/2oz of 99.99% pure silver in proof quality.

The coin's reverse features a harp seal pup resting on ice. The inscription HARP SEAL, and The Perth Mint's 'P' mintmark, also appear in the design.

Each coin is issued as legal tender under the authority of the Government of Tuvalu and features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, the 2017 year-date and the monetary denomination on its obverse.

The Perth Mint will release no more than 5,000 of the Polar Babies - Harp Seal 2017 1/2oz Silver Proof Coin.

The set is housed in a classic Perth Mint presentation case with a themed, customized shipper and is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
