Tiger Shark: Last Shark Series Coin Released for Final Feeding Frenzy

The Silver Tiger Shark Launches Exclusively From APMEX as the Final Installment of the Perth Mint's Shark Series

OKLAHOMA CITY, OK--(Marketwired - April 04, 2016) - Australia's Perth Mint is saying goodbye to its APMEXclusive® Shark Series with the release of the Silver Tiger Shark coin. Previous installments included the 1/2 oz Great White Shark and 1/2 oz Great Hammerhead Shark coins, both in .999 fine Silver. This final issue has been upgraded in purity, with the Tiger Shark coin cast in .9999 fine Silver, making this final release even more desirable.

The reverse of the 1/2 oz Silver coin features an illustration of the fearsome predator swimming above warm-water reefs that tiger sharks favor. Known for their vertical stripes that fade as the shark matures, they are commonly referred to as "sea tigers" and are compared to the land animals that share their name.

"Tiger sharks are known for their prowess as one of the most formidable hunters of the ocean, so we felt it was a perfect fit for the last of what has been an incredibly popular series by The Perth Mint," APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Andrew Martineau said. "With the move to .9999 fine Silver and a stellar design that perfectly depicts the solitary nature of this apex predator, The Perth Mint has struck again with a brilliant addition to their bullion line."

As a smaller denomination that fits in any portfolio size, this 1/2 oz .9999 fine Silver APMEXclusive® coin has an extremely limited mintage, resulting in a very good find for anyone on the hunt. The Perth Mint issues this Silver coin by the authority of Australia, where it is legal tender with a face value of 50 cents.
