Coin Story

One of nature's most impressive wonders is displayed each year, when millions of animals start their great annual migration, covering vast distances in search for food, mating partners or shelter.

Arctic Terns are known to complete the longest yearly migration of any animal, in terms of distance. This little bird travels along the same route, and covers a distance of at least 25,000 miles from their Arctic breeding grounds to Antarctica and back, each year.

The Arctic Tern makes this long journey to Antarctica for food, rest, and for the warmer summers. Recent research shown that Arctic terns use a combination of navigational tools such as wind, the Earth’s magnetic field and visual clues to navigate this extraordinary journey.
