Face value 5 Dollars
Metal Silver .999
Weight 1 oz

The latest pearl of the hugely popular Marine Life series is set in a Triton trumpet which, thanks to smartminting, rises well above the background scenery. Due to the ultra-high relief it seems lifelike and within reach.
Triton trumpets (Charonia tritonis) are giant conches and with a length of up to 60 cm they are the biggest molluscs in the coral reefs of the Indo-Pacific region. Astonishingly, they like to feed on starfish which they paralyse and soften with their acidic saliva.
