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.

Great Shark round!

By  Bubba

Really like the Shark series rounds. Purchased all three that were available at this time. Premium a little high, especially on the older year coin, but that only shows an increase in value which is s good indicator on ROI. Nice detail, Nice size for 1/2 oz. Very satisfied, looking forward to future releases if they come.

I like most all of the 1/2 and 3/4 oz coins that Australia puts out, and pick a few up when the price is right... And if spot goes down significantly I will double up to bring down average cost..
