OCEAN PREDATORS – GREAT WHITE SHARK (2021 MTB/PAMP)
OCEAN PREDATORS - GREAT WHITE SHARK (2021 MTB/PAMP)
It seems PAMP/MTB are continuing to stake out their claim to the more unusually shaped coins after a 2020 that saw PEZ, Giants of the Galapagos Islands, and Hunters of the Sky/Deep. We’ve already had Sweethearts and Fender guitar picks, so it’s of little surprise to see the Galapagos series style appear with a new subject for a new range, Ocean Predators.
The Great White Shark is an obvious first choice, and demonstrates the style pretty well. The beast leaping from the water, is also leaping from the confines of a standard round coin. The artwork covers the odd shape completely with just date and composition inscriptions present. Issued for Solomon Islands, the obverse is filled with an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II, with a background field seemingly covered by a marine topographical map of the surrounding seas.
Packaging is a neat box with a C.O.A. and the 2 oz 0.9999 proof silver coin has a mintage of 1,500 pieces. It spans out to around 55 mm in diameter, and should retail around the $150 USD mark. The next two coins follow a similar style and feature the Polar Bear and the Killer Whale. Available this month.
