Dive into the mysteries of the deep blue sea with this 5oz Silver Proof Creatures of the Abyss Coin. The ocean, covering 71% of Earth’s surface, holds secrets waiting to be unveiled, and this coin brings you face-to-face with the fascinating creatures residing in its depths. The fish featured on this stunning coin are found in the bathypelagic zone of the oceans, which is between 1,000 and 4,000 meters deep. At this depth, there is no sunlight, and the water is below 40°F. The fish found living in the bathypelagic zone are extremely rare as they’ve had to adapt over time to thrive in these conditions.
