The Tiger Shark. Now this is a pretty popular subject in the numismatic world and there have been some great designs over the last few years, but this is the first time we've seen a coin take on the animal's iconic profile. Struck in an ounce of 0.9999 silver, the reverse of the coin portrays a fairly accurate depiction of this magnificent animal. All the inscriptions, including the title and issue details, are on the obverse. An effigy of Queen Elizabeth II is also present here, as this is issued for the Solomon Islands.
The Tiger Shark (Galeocerdo cuvier) is a voracious hunter and scavenger of the deep. Because it has sharp jagged teeth and a curious nature it will eat almost anything; squids, birds, stingrays and even old tires!
Enclosed in a custom-shaped capsule, the coin is presented in a double gatefold CD-style booklet packed with information on the Hammerhead Shark. Unusually, the serial number is engraved on the obverse of the coin.
