2015 Tokelau 1 oz Silver $5 Mokoha Great White Shark

This 2015 1 oz Silver coin from the tropical New Zealand territory of Tokelau features an imposing Great White Shark swimming through the depths of the ocean. This impressive specimen is prominently displayed hunting for his next meal.

Coin Highlights:

  • Contains 1 oz of .999 fine Silver.
  • Multiples of 20 come in mint tubes. Multiples of 500 come in mint boxes. All other coins will be in protective plastic.
  • Obverse: The likeness of Queen Elizabeth II along with the Tuluma, which is the national symbol of Tokelau. The Tuluma is a wooden tackle box used by the fishermen of Tokelau, inscribed with “Tokelau mot e Atua” meaning “Tokelau for God,” referencing the influence of Christianity in Tokelau.

The history of 2015 Silver bullion Mokoha Great White Sharks

These New Zealand coins are from the tiny tropical territory of Tokelau, a territory of New Zealand located halfway between Hawaii and New Zealand in the South Pacific Ocean. This 2015 Silver coin is the second one in a series that highlights the wildlife found among the trio of coral atolls that make up the territory. While the inaugural Silver coin depicted a Yellowfin Tuna, this Silver coin focuses on a much deadlier mammal, the Great White Shark. Selling Silver bullion and other Precious Metals coins is one of the few ways Tokelau generates income for itself.

Why invest in these Silver coins?

These 2015 Silver coins contain 1 troy oz of .999 fine Silver, and they are sovereign Silver coins backed by the Tokelauan government. Though these Silver coins have a limited mintage, their premium over the spot price of Silver is low, making these Silver bullion coins ideal for investing. The 1 oz Silver coin price allows investors with budgets of all sizes to add Silver to their investment portfolios at a lower price point. Many buy Silver because the global supply is finite, and the relative purchasing power has historically remained stable during economic downturns.

Should have checked reviews...

By  Bob

1.0

I should read reviews. Exactly what others wrote about it. Matte surface, no shine, low quality imprint, as if it is sprayed over with paint. Exactly what is on the image but I have never seen anything like that before so did not expect it. Not like other silver rounds. Afraid it will be hard to sell locally.

Cons

  • Hard to Sell
  • Poor Condition

Meh... could be much better

By  Mike

Let me start by saying I'm working on a 2015 collection of 1 oz silver coins and so far I have over two dozen different coins from over a dozen different countries. This is the only coin of the bunch that I feel was a major flop. Like others have mentioned, the relief is very shallow and it just doesn't scream quality to me. I know sharks aren't inherently detailed creatures, but it's a rather boring design. I'm glad I purchased it, for the sake of my collection, but I definitely won't be buying another one.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)
  • Mint Condition

Cons

  • Unattractive Design

Really poor effort from whoever made this

By  Another silverbug

I like having different items in my stack/collection, but these were a mistake (both this and last year's tuna). The strike is among the shallowest I've ever seen, making for a truly unimpressive coin in the hand. No details, no luster, looks downright cheap, which is not a quality I associate with sovereign silver. If I wouldn't lose money relative to spot in the return shipping, they would be going back.

Cons

  • Poor Condition
  • Unattractive Design

Unique but lower quality coin

By  Adam R.

from El Dorado Hills, CA

3.0

I bought several of these coins to give as gifts due to the relatively unique great white shark image on the coin. However, like other coins from this mint, the coin is of a much lower quality than the Royal Canadian mint for example. The relief on the coin is very shallow. I am not a minting expert but this seems to be a cheaper, lower quality process. The design is also not very intricate which I am guessing also has something to do with the limited ability to do ornate things on a shallow striking. Finally, the luster itself is a dull matte on the entire coin with no contrasting polished sections. Still a neat coin due to the cool image of the shark and I may buy more.

Pros

  • Value (low premium over spot)

Eye catching art!

For a small island, Tokelau has some of the most riveting coins!

Pros

  • Collectible (lower mintage)
  • Mint Condition
  • Attractive Design
  • Easy to Sell
  • Value (low premium over spot)

“Sovereign Silver bullion coins,” what does that mean?

When you see Silver coins that are sovereign, this means the coins are minted by a government, and that they carry a face value when in circulation. Though this Tokelau 2015 Silver bullion coin has a face value, its real value is in its .999 fine Silver content. These rare coins also have numismatic or collector value that increases the 1 oz Silver coin price. Numismatic Silver coins are typically priced higher than investment-grade Silver coins because the premium includes a markup for rarity and historic or artistic value.
