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 at the same time. When the pups reach three weeks of age, their fluffy white coat starts to moult, revealing a darker, silvery grey coloured fur.
These incredible creatures are named for the pattern that forms on their back as they grow older which resembles a harp. This pattern is most distinct on male harp seals.
The coin’s reverse features a harp seal pup resting on ice. The inscription HARP SEAL also appear in the design.
Displayed in a classic presentation case, the coin is delivered in a delightful illustrated shipper with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
