APMEX and the Perth Mint have announced the release of a new silver bullion coin featuring the Great Hammerhead Shark.
The Great Hammerhead Shark silver bullion coin comes in an uncirculated finish and contains 1/2 ounce of .999 fine silver and has a mintage limit of 300,000 pieces. The coin’s obverse features the Ian Rank-Broadley effigy of Queen Elizabeth II. The reverse features the iconic shark navigated the ocean waters. The initials of the coin’s designer, Natasha Muhl, can be seen on the shark’s lower caudal fin.
At the Whitman Coin & Collectibles Expo in March, CoinWeek Executive producer David Lisot spoke with Michael Garofalo, Numismatic Director of APMEX about this new bullion issue.
