The Perth Mint has once again produced a coin enjoyed by all. Add the 2015 1/2 oz Silver Hammerhead Shark to your cart today!

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.

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.

The Silver in a Silver coin has hundreds of uses in industry.

The value of a Silver coin is partially derived from the industrial uses of Silver. The 1/2 oz Silver shark has a legal tender value of 50 cents, but the intrinsic value of Silver is much higher because it can be used in ways such as batteries, antibacterial medical devices and chemical reactions for producing compounds. The price for Silver coins for sale at APMEX varies with the industrial demand, and the unique chemical properties of Silver mean Silver has uses in nearly every industry. Australian Silver coins are a way for you to own Silver and profit from the demand for the Precious Metal.

Silver coins for sale are guaranteed for weight and quality by the government that issues them.

A government mint backed Silver coin always has a face value, making it legal tender in its country of origin and different from a Silver round, which may look like a coin but will not have a monetary value on it. A 1/2 oz Silver shark is stamped with the value 50 cents, but its real value is tied to the Silver spot price. APMEX has Silver coins for sale that can be divided into two categories: coins sold as Silver bullion and coins sold for their rarity and value to collectors. Australian Silver coins such as the Hammerhead Shark Series are created primarily to be used as bullion by investors with the guarantee of the Australian government behind them. However, collector series do often have numismatic or collector value, especially older coins in the series with popular designs.

This .999 fine Silver coin is the second release in the APMEXclusive® Perth Mint Shark Series that celebrates popular sharks on 1/2 oz Silver coins.

Damaged or altered??????

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Both of the 2015 Australia 1/2 oz. Silver Great Hammerhead Shark BU coins look like someone ground on them with a small Dremel tool or with very fine sandpaper. It's much worse than Milk Spots. The overall design of the coins is good but the quality control for these was seriously lacking.

Great Shark round.

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

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.

Nice looking coin

Was this review helpful? Yes/ No

Purchased this as part of my first order from apmex. All 3 of this shark series are well designed. The only negative is that a large portion beneath the shark that has a hazy look to it. Maybe its just the one I got. Nice coin otherwise.
