      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 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.

                    Very nice round. Love getting in for the first round in this series. Only 300,000 minted. Can't wait for the next in the series.

                      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.

                          Stunning coin, one of my favourites so far. The Great White does appear to jump out at you as someone previously mentioned. I bought a few of these and intend buying more. I'm hoping that Perth Mint will also produce these in 1 ounce coins.

                              The half ounce Great White Shark from the Perth Mint is a killer coin. This is the very first coin of the Wildlife series that would be fitting for any collection. Considering that there is a low Mintage of only 300,000 these coins will climb in value by the time the next coin of the series is released. At a great price today, don't miss out on this brand new line of coins.

                                          Nice looking coin from the Perth Mint, who consistently turn out some of the best bullion coins out there. Given the quality of their product and their proven track record in the secondary market, it would be wise to pick up at least a few of these while the premiums are reasonable. Swim with the silver sharks!
