We present candidates for the global minimum energy solitons of charge 5 to 9 in the Skyrme model generated using sophisticated numerical algorithms. The solitons found are particularly symmetric; for example, the charge seven skyrmion has icosahedral symmetry, and the shapes are shown to fit a remarkable sequence defined by a geometric energy minimization (GEM) rule.
