The last of the Czech Mints ‘Animal Champions’ intros this month and features one of natures most finely honed predators, the shark. For over 400 million years, sharks and their immediate ancestors have prowled the world’s seas, often as apex predators, a position the Great White Shark occupies today, as long as there aren’t any Orca around, at least…
A very neat, stylised series of animal coins, each of which highlights an animal that excels at something like speed, size, etc. In the case of the shark, it’s the animal kingdoms most developed sensory suite. This is the fourth and last of the 2020 set, which itself follows four from 2019. Antique-finished, one ounce fine silver coins, they have a distinctive visual style which is clearly on show here. It has a mintage of 800 pieces and should ship later this month for €66.00. They come in a cardboard pack filled with information.
