In the third and final release of the Ocean Predators Series, the Killer Whale debuts on one of the shaped coins of the collection. While other shaped-coin collections come with a coin shaped exactly like a particular animal, this series takes a unique approach to shaped coining. Rather than shaping the coin like the animal, it offers a bumped-out section on each side, with the reverse field showcasing the animal striking at its prey in this special, shaped section. Now, 2022 2 oz Solomon Islands Ocean Predators Series Killer Whale Shaped Coins are available to you for purchase online from JM Bullion.

Known as the killer whale, the orca is a toothed species of whale that is the largest member of the oceanic dolphin family. Unlike other whales or dolphins, the killer whale is known as a cosmopolitan species. This phrase refers to the widespread distribution of killer whales around the world.
You can find killer whales in all the oceans of the world, where the environment is appropriate for the species. The only major bodies of water the killer whale is absent from are the Black Sea and the Baltic Sea. It is typically found living in cold-water climates of the world’s various oceans near the Antarctic and Arctic Circles, but is also found in tropical and temperate waters.
On the obverse of the 2022 2 oz Solomon Islands Ocean Predators Series Killer Whale Shaped Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. Her Majesty is featured here in right-profile relief with the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara, rumored to be her favorite, on her head. In the background field, the Solomon Islands and other regions of the South Pacific are featured in the navigational-map design.
The reverse of 2022 Solomon Islands Killer Whale Shaped Coin comes with a depiction of the killer whale. As mentioned in the introduction, the killer whale’s figure on this side is captured leaping from the traditional design field as it strikes at its prey. Killer whales are notable for their black skin and white underbellies.
These 2022 2 oz Solomon Islands Ocean Predators Series Killer Whale Shaped Coins are available to you for purchase in Brilliant Uncirculated condition. You will receive your coin inside of a specially shaped capsule with a presentation box featuring colorized graphics of the killer whale on the lid.
