Mother's Love #2 - Elephant outer boxA Gentle Giant
Asian elephant mothers are among the most dedicated and protective in the entire animal kingdom. The gestation period is 18–22 months, and the female gives birth to one calf, only occasionally twins. The calf is fully developed by the 19th month, but stays in the womb to grow so that it can reach its mother to feed. At birth, the calf weighs about 220 pounds (100 kg), and is suckled for up to three years. Once a female gives birth, she usually does not breed again until the first calf is weaned, resulting in a 4- to 5-year birth interval.

Displaying a special bond, the mother and her calf move together among other related females and their young, under the direction of a matriarch. The mother dedicates all of her time and love to her calf. Highly protective and ever conscious of her baby’s well-being, an Asian elephant mother will charge fiercely and recklessly at any threat to her young calf, with no heed for her own safety at all. In quieter times, she displays many gentle touching behaviors to reassure her calf.

Asian elephants are highly intelligent and self-aware. They exhibit a wide variety of behaviors, including those associated with grief, learning, allomothering, mimicry, play, altruism, use of tools, compassion, cooperation, self-awareness, memory, and language. Elephants are reported to go to safer ground during natural disasters like tsunamis and earthquakes.

The Mother Asian Elephant and Calf Pure Silver Proof is the second in the new and exciting Mother's Love Wildlife Program, to be released by the Perth Mint. Coins featuring the following animals are planned:

    Lioness and Cub
    Elephant
    Giraffe
    Bear
    Orangutang
    + Five Coin Display Box

Your Own Personal Art Gallery!
Another clever innovation (and a neat little bonus!) is the colorfully illustrated outer box shipper. Each features a different, original commission of each mother and baby animal. When lined-up in release order, the outer boxes will form a gallery of original artworks of the five tender, vibrant and superbly executed wildlife scenes.

This special, five coin display box is available at a nominal additional charge. This is a superb way to protect and present all five coins in their full color, illustrated cases.
