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.
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.
