Australia is home to some of the most dangerous animals in the world, as well as those you just don't want to meet, like the massive 30cm Hunstman spider.
So who better to celebrate these deadly and dangerous species than the expert craftsmen at The Perth Mint?
The twelfth coin of the series features the Bull Shark, which may be the most dangerous shark to humans. Perhaps the most famous incident occurred in 1916 when 4 people were killed in shark attacks over 2 weeks. And just in case you thought it would be safe to splash around away from the seas, these fearsome beasts can swim in fresh water.
These near threatened creatures have a very sturdy body with a blunt, rounded snout, giving the Bull Shark its name. These characteristics have been perfectly captured by The Perth Mint in colour using ;state of the art mint techniques. A large bull shark with smaller bull sharks in the background as well as coloured fish and coral. The design also includes the inscription AUSTRALIA’S BULL SHARK, the 2017 year-date and The Perth Mint’s ‘P’ mint mark. The design is struck on 99.99% pure silver and finished to Proof quality.
The silver coin comes in colourful, specially designed packaging and wooden presentation box. Each coin is accompanied by a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
All previous coins in the Deadly & Dangerous series have been very popular with collectors - don't miss your chance to order the Bull Ant today.
