It is dusk, and the great hammerhead shark scours the sea floor for its next meal. This solitary predator is different from other sharks. The great hammerhead shark’s uniquely hammer-shaped head and sickle-shaped dorsal fin is recognized worldwide. Seeing this image in person is fascinating enough, but seeing hundreds of great hammerhead sharks migrating up the coastlines is a sight to behold. We have marveled at the sight of this oddly shaped shark for centuries. This intriguingly shaped shark is why the design of the 1/2 oz Silver Great Hammerhead Shark coin has been created by the Perth Mint.
We have received these Silver coins as an APMEXclusive® from the Perth Mint, which means you will be unable to get this beautiful design anywhere else. This exclusivity, combined with a strictly low mintage, adds an aspect of collectibility to these low premium Silver coins.
The magnificent great hammerhead shark is the largest species of hammerhead, growing up to 20 feet in length. On average they are around 11 feet long and weigh 500 pounds. They can be distinguished from other shark species by the shape of their head and the tall, curved first dorsal fin.
