Swordfish, also known as broadbill in some countries, are large, highly migratory, predatory fish characterized by a long, flat bill. They have elongated, round bodies, and they lose all teeth and scales by adulthood. These fish can live close to shore and reach a maximum length of 14 feet 9 inches and 1,400 pounds. This makes them a popular sport fish in the billfish category, even though they are elusive.
These coins are as elusive as the fish themselves! With such a low mintage, beautiful design, hard to find gilding, and neat presentation case, these coins are sure to please! A great gift for the fisherman or sea lover in your life.
