Coin Story

Seahorse is the name given to 54 species of small marine fishes in the genus Hippocampus. "Hippocampus" comes from the Ancient Greek hippos meaning "horse" and kampos meaning "sea monster". Having a head and neck suggestive of a horse, seahorses also feature segmented bony armour, an upright posture and a curled prehensile tail.

Reverse Design

The coin’s reverse captures a bright yellow sea horse in full color. You will also find the The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mintmark as well as the name of the fish and the series "Australian Sea Life - The Reef" on this side of the coin.

Obverse Design

The obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and denomination of the coin.


The Australian Sea Life - Sea Horse coin is housed in a presentation display case and superbly illustrated shipper along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
