2012 $1 Young Collectors Animal Athletes – Sailfish Unc Coin in Card.

The fastest fish in the ocean, the spectacular sailfish can reach speeds of 110 kilometres per hour.

Compare this to the world’s best human swimmers, who, dependant on water conditions can only reach top speeds of up to 8 kilometres per hour. These fish have a dorsal fin known as a sail, which often stretches the entire length of the back. The sail is normally kept folded down when swimming, but it may be raised when the sailfish feels threatened or excited, making the fish appear much larger than it actually is.

This tactic has also been observed during feeding, when a group of Sailfish use their sails to herd a school of anchovies, sardines or squid – their favourite food.

When Sailfish are born, they can be as small as 2 centimetres in length, but as adults can grow up to just over 3 metres in length. No wonder the spectacular Sailfish is the fastest swimmer in the sea.

The coins reverse features a coloured Sailfish set against the coloured background school of fish.

The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark is incorporated into the design. Issued as Australian legal tender. Each coin is housed in a full colour presentation card.
