2022 – THE KRAKEN – 1 TROY OUNCE – 39MM
There was a time in history when the mere mention of the Kraken sent chills down a mariner’s spine. The legendary beast was known for dragging ships of all sizes down to the watery depths of Davy Jone’s Locker.
Kraken comes from the Norwegian word krake, which is probably related to the German krake, which means octopus. Accounts disagree on the size of the beast, but one thing is certain, it is huge.
Legend says that the sea monster enjoys solitude and resides deep on the ocean floor. It uses its tentacles to stay tethered to the bottom and when it is hunting for food. The beast will only surface in warm weather or when disturbed.
