Issued on behalf of South Georgia and Sandwich Islands. Unique presentation box and certificate. DIA 38.60 28.28 GRAMS. 2017 coin on behalf of the South Georgia and Sandwich Islands Government which features the Elephant Seal. The Southern Elephant Seal (Mirounga leonina) is one of the two extant species of elephant seals. It is both the largest pinniped and member of the order Carnivora living today, as well as the largest Antarctic seal. The seal gets its name from its great size and the large proboscis of the adult males, which is used to make extraordinarily loud roaring noises, especially during the mating season. Instantly recognisable by the large, inflatable proboscis, the male southern elephant seal is the biggest seal in its family. They are able to propel themselves quickly as fast as 8 km/h (5.0 mph) in this way for short-distance travel, to return to water, to catch up with a female, or to chase an intruder. This New 2017 coin depicts a male and female Elephant Seal while sitting on a beach, which is one of the most popular places to find any elephant seals in the South Georgia and South Sandwich Islands.
