Great White Shark:
The great white shark is one of the most recognizable sharks in existence. The great predator of the deep ranges in size from 11 to 17 feet and weighs from 1,500 to 2,430 pounds as an adult, with one of the largest measuring up to 21 feet in length and weighing 7,328 pounds. Great white sharks prefer coastal and offshore waters which have water temperatures between 54 to 75 degrees Fahrenheit.
Great Hammerhead Shark:
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.
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.

When my first set arrived, two of the coins had heavy milk-spotting on them, and one was covered in foreign material --inside of the capsule. I contacted APMEX and requested an exchange --within a few hours the package was off. Second set just came in and the coins look dingy, and one has marks on it where it looks like another coin had struck it. If you're going to pay for these coins, forgo the wooden box --they won't arrive in nice enough condition to display anyways. Might as well buy a few more Queen's Beasts or Lunar coins for the price.

The coins are very nice. The problem with this set is the presentation box. The box itself is nice but instead of the coins sitting nicely into an inset in the box, you have to wedge the coins between piece of felt covered piece (which is not easy) then just lay the piece with the coins back into the box. A very cheap way to do it APMEX. Really gives this set a cheesy feel.

This item can be easily displayed without high risk. The half-ounce coins provide a lower price entry point into the collector market. The coins ran for just three years, giving you a complete set is less time than other collections. Three individual coins represent the complete set. You can purchase 25-coin mint-direct sleeves from each year for the real investment.

I purchased these sets because they are very awesome looking and I am just a fan. Both sets arrived in perfect condition. I could not find any blemishes, scratches, or spots. The Tiger Shark coin is my favorite, for sure. It looks awesome with great detail and absolute gorgeous work, as expected from Perth Mint. I definitely do not regret purchasing these coins from APMEX. As normal, the coins were packaged flawlessly with fast delivery. Anyone who is thinking about getting a set, I say go for it! You're paying extra for the box, but it is a very nice to have and worth the extra. You won't regret this set. You won't regret buying from APMEX. Get these before they sell out! Buy with confidence!
