Mint-sealed tubes feature a holographic security strip placed on top of the tube by The Perth Mint, allowing the ability to tell if the tube has been tampered with since leaving the mint.

The tiger shark, commonly known as the “Sea Tiger”, is the fourth-largest shark in the world. Tiger sharks get their name from eye-catching dark vertical stripes found on young sharks, also known as pups. As these pups mature into adults, the dark stripes begin to fade. The skin of a tiger shark typically ranges from blue to light green with a white or light-yellow underbelly, giving it great camouflage when seen from above or below.

This solitary shark ranges in size from 10 to 14 feet and weighs from 849 to 1,400 pounds as an adult, but large specimens have been known to grow up to 25 feet in length and weighing up to 1,900 pounds. Tiger sharks enjoy warm waters and can easily be spotted near the surface in tropical and sub-tropical areas of the world such as Hawaii. Though this predator of the deep is at the top of the food chain, it is considered a near-threatened species due to finning and fishing by humans.

Saved my Day!

This was a last minute birthday present for my son, so I started to sweat when the delivery date was projected for the day of the birthday party. Nevertheless, it showed up two days early (kudos to APMEX's discreet and very well put-together packaging), with plenty of time left to wrap. As some have mentioned, not recommended for stacking, but makes a handsome addition to any collection; this is a BEAUTIFUL coin!

Shark Attack!

Got all 3 in this shark series for my grandson who is currently obsessed with learning all about them. I liked this Tiger so much I had to order another for myself. With the extra premium on the 1/2 oz and the expense of a capsule they are a bit too pricy to stack but for an interesting addition to your collection I recommend the set - They (and especially this one) are a sweet add.
