The Wonders of our Blue Planet

Countless expeditions have been made to the very edges of our planet and yet, every year between 15,000 and 18,000 undiscovered species of plants, animals and microbes are documented for the first time. We can look to the stars and know an enormous amount about distant planets yet, according to the National Ocean Service, we have only fully explored about 5% of our deepest seas. As our knowledge increases, so does our admiration and respect for the biological diversity and beautiful complexity of life on this planet.  

Captivating Designs – chosen from all over the world

Given the huge variety of wildlife that exists around the world, it should come as no surprise that many countries have chosen to celebrate their local environment by depicting animals on their coins. The London Mint Office is very proud to present, Miracles of Nature: Animals, a 16-coin collection comprising some of the most interesting and beautiful coin designs in the world.  

Presented in stunning uncirculated quality, each coin has been hand selected by experts to represent the wonderful diversity of animal life on our planet.  From the freshwater crocodile of Papua New Guinea to the Gentoo Penguin of the Falkland Islands, each coin is beautifully displayed in a fully illustrated presentation folder, making this an excellent gift for animal lovers and coin collectors alike. 

These magnificent world coins come in all shapes and sizes just like the diversification of the animals they depict; a perfect cross-section of a fascinating, numismatic global journey. It would require a huge amount of time and effort to collect all of these stunning uncirculated coins yourself so we have done the hard work for you. All you have to do is admire them!   

Endangered Diversity – Our responsibility

Sadly, few people will be fortunate enough to see all of these animals in their natural habitat as some are close to extinction. According to the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) animals that appear on their endangered list include the African bush elephant (Swaziland), the sea turtle (Cape Verde), the white rhinoceros (Mozambique) and the Bengal tiger (Bangladesh). 

It is extremely rare to find such a fine collection of uncirculated animal coins in one place. Order your complete set of 16 world coins today for only £48. An incredible £3 per coin, which is much less than the price of a plane ticket!
