The tiger shark is the fourth largest shark in the world, ranging in size from 10 to 14 feet, and gets its name from the dark vertical stripes found on young sharks. These eye-catching stripes begin to fade as they reach maturity and their skin turns to a blue or green colour with a light underbelly, giving the shark excellent camouflage when seen from underneath or above.
This coin was the third and final release of the Australian Perth Shark series and contains 999.9 silver, making it the highest purity release of the series.
As these coins are being sold on the second hand margin scheme, there is no VAT to pay.
