__Water Otter - Arctic Sea








Some notes from Anne:

I grew up on the central coast of California, and I always think of sea otters when I think of this area. They are adorable, playful animals, and just a joy to watch. They are endangered, but it is still possible to see them floating on their backs, munching on their lunch near the kelp beds in the Monterey Bay. I wanted to capture their graceful water acrobatics in this coin, but with a playful style to the artwork.

The back features the kelp forests that they call home, along with a Garibaldi fish (not to be confused with the Babylon 5 character ), another native to this area. If you look closely, you will also see a shark, and two other fish in the background.

The geocoin is 2" tall, and 3mm thick.
