The White Whale design was added to Elemetal Mint's Privateer series of silver rounds in 2017. Like previous Privateer rounds, it has an ultra high relief design. It weighs 2 Troy oz. and is made of .999 fine silver. While this is primarily a bullion product, a number of collectors have also started following the series because of the appealing designs.
The obverse of this round features a design that is common to the series. A skull and a ship's wheel can be seen here. This side is inscribed with the silver content along with "NO PREY NO PAY," which was a common motto among privateers. The captain of a privateer ship would often use this phrase to tell sailors how their compensation would be determined.
The reverse shows the enormous white whale. It has breached the water's surface and several harpoons can be seen in its back. The level of detail here is nothing short of stunning.
