THIRD AND FINAL COIN IN SERIES! A touching take on sea otters! Order today!

Clever, cute and curious, the sea otter's playful antics endear it to watchers on Canada's Pacific coast. This furry weasel loves to eat, sleep, play, and groom while floating on its back. Whether diving under the waves or wrapping itself in kelp to stay in place, an otter is resourceful but prefers to spend time in a group, even holding paws as they quietly drift off to sleep. The sun sets on our Canadian Fauna series, which concludes with a loving image of a creature cuddle at sea. Tucked into their kelp "bed" for the night, these sea otters enjoy a closeness that helps them weather life's ups and downs—it's a show of affection and warmth to which we can all relate.

An ideal coin gift for someone who enjoys cute sea otters and nature! Order today!
