2015 50c Hammerhead Shark 1/2oz Silver Bullion Coin
Beautifully designed and superbly struck, this unique Australian legal tender silver coin from the Perth Mint forms a distinctive tribute to the exotic, unusual Great Hammerhead Shark.
Residing at the top of the aquatic food chain, with no natural predators, the Great Hammerhead Shark is the largest Hammerhead species. Growing up to 6 metres in length – that’s over 20ft long! – this species is found in Australia’s warmer waters. Overfishing due to the demand in Asia for its large fin (used for Shark Fin Soup) has seen the Great Hammerhead Shark listed as endangered by the International Union for Conservation of Nature.
Capturing this huge shark in pure, lustrous precious metal, the Perth Mint’s 2015 50c Great Hammerhead Shark 1/2oz Silver BU would make a fine addition to any collection. Struck to the Mint’s rigorous Brilliant Uncirculated standard from 99.9% pure silver, this coin is a bargain at just $29.95.
