This listing is for one Uncirculated:
Dolphin Mother And Baby With Coral
British Virgin Islands
Dolphin Series Second Issue
2005 $1 Legal Tender Copper-Nickel Coin Uncirculated
The grace and beauty of the form and movement of the dolphin amazes us, their playful, curious nature charms us and their built in grin amuses us. Found in virtually all seas and oceans of the world, there are over 50 species of Dolphin and much research is being undertaken to find out about these amazing creatures. The clicking sounds made by these endearing animals is a form of sonar. Echoes from surrounding objects allow them to detect obstacles, other animals and matter in the water as their eyesight is not that good. Dolphins need to be conscious in order to breath, which means that they do not go into a deep sleep and studies have shown that they have the ability to let one half of their brain ‘sleep’ at a time.
