Backed by the combined reputations of APMEX and the Perth Mint, this exclusive coin should sell very well. The relief of the Great White Shark on the reverse contrasts well against the matte fields. I even like the design for the plastic tubes - they hold 25 coins and have an easy to remove lid. If you don't require every coin to come in a capsule, then this coin is an affordable 1/2 oz option. I recommend buying them in multiples of 25, but singles can be protected by 32 mm Air-Tite Holder w/ Black Gasket (#696).

Very beautiful shark design showing nature at its fiercest. QE-II on the obverse is the usual--quite a contrast to the viciousness of the sharks on the reverse!

I got a tube of 25. I was impressed by the square plastic "tube". (i.e. easily stackable). Easy to open. Top coin had some tarnish on it already. Hmmmm...

Also, I noticed that the label on the lid placed by APMEX has the tube mislabeled as 1 oz Silver, instead of 1/2 oz. This could pose a problem when trying to resell.

          This is my first Perth Mint Silver Coin. I have to say, I am very impressed. I was worried that the size would hamper the design and that the shark would look like goldfish I was wrong. Coin is very cleaning stamped. Great White Shark is very clear while the silver is very bright. Very nice piece.

            Pretty nice looking coin when you have it in your hand. Bought a couple of these for my stack and as a collectable. Disappointed that they didn't come in a capsule like a lot of the other Australian coins. I know this isn't APMEX's fault. Would buy again.

            Comments about 2014 Australia 1/2 oz Silver Great White Shark:

            I bought this coin because I need more fractional silver, plus being a limited mintage made it more attractive. It has a fine bullion grey finish with white sharks on its obverse.

            As always, speedy, secure and discreet delivery is APMEX's hallmark. Way to go APMEX!

                Nice coin. I pick up 5 and plan on getting 5 more every year they come out with a new design. 1st year of production and a lower mintage.

                    This coin has a great looking design that is better in person than the picture shows. I like the low mintage and low premium compared to other 1/2 oz coins.

                          Very cool coin. It's nice to see something other than a one-ounce bullion coin. The shark is very fierce, and very cool. Not a huge fan of queen Liz's mugshot, but whatever. Looking forward to following the rest of the series in the rest of my collection.

                                My 10 and 12 year old wanted this coin so I purchased three of them - had to get one for myself. I envisioned this 1/2 oz coin having a more shiny and matte finish like the 1 oz saltwater crocodile, but the overall look is a little dull.

                                My 12 year old son says this coin is his favorite, so I would recommend this little investment for gifts for kids.

                                On a side note, I happened to already have some 33mm air-tites with the foam ring and this coin moves around too much. So if you are looking for an air-tite to put it in I would recommend the 32mm with foam rings.

                                Super fast shipping, ordered Friday and arrived Monday morning.
