At the cutting edge of numismatics, the Perth Mint has struck a full-colour coin of ferocious intensity for the hugely popular Deadly and Dangerous Series – the highly anticipated second coin in the series! Bearing a vivid, true-to-life portrayal of Australia’s most fearsome, most famous maritime inhabitant, the 2007 $1 Great White Shark Colour 1oz Silver Proof is a coin with real bite!
A highly original, extremely exclusive tribute to the Great White Shark, the dramatic design of this limited edition release caught the eye of colour coin enthusiasts. Also known in this country as a White Pointer, or more graphically, White Death, this terrifying marine killing machine formed a wonderful subject for the Mint’s pioneering full-colour technology.
A hungry school of collectors sank its teeth into the limited worldwide mintage of 5,000. When you also take into account the strong global fascination with this mysterious monster of the deep, and the number of non-collectors sure to be drawn to this coin, a sell-out of the Great White Shark Silver Proof was clearly unavoidable.
An outstanding presentation, familiar to those lucky enough to have secured the Red-back Spider $1 Proof (or any other issue in the Deadly and Dangerous Silver Series), each coin is housed in a striking high-gloss timber case.
- Worldwide mintage set at just 5,000 coins
- Struck to Proof quality from 1oz 99.9% fine silver
- Issued by Perth Mint as Tuvalu legal tender
- Set in a superb timber case with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity
