Scientists, aboard the CSIRO research vessel (RV) Investigator, have explored the deep-sea and ocean abyss, discovering amazing and unique creatures of the deep.

The beautiful gold coral (Chrysogorgia) is a type of ocotoral, commonly known as soft corals and sea fans. While they may look like plants, octocorals are colonial animals and each polyp has eight (octo) feeding tentacles fringed with fine little branches called pinnules that capture food particles floating in the water.

The Royal Australian Mint celebrates these journeys of scientific endeavour, and the wondorous creatures they discovered with this 2023 $10 'C' Mintmark Gold Proof Coin - secure yours today!
