Product Description

This baby animals wildlife set, jam-packed with a coin, stamps and more, offers an incredible value!

Sold out at the Mint!The Atlantic walrus is now found only in the Canadian Arctic, in the waters off Greenland, and in the northernmost wastes of Russia, though once its range extended throughout the Gulf of St. Lawrence and as far south as Cape Cod! Today they are critically endangered, with only about 15,000 left in the wild. This handsome set, complete with mint block of stamps and pure silver proof coin, represents an excellent opportunity to show your appreciation for this unique mammal!
