Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 29, 2015
GovMint.com and Discovery Consumer Products, the licensing arm of Discovery Communications, announced today the first official Shark Week coins—legal-tender coins struck in copper-nickel, silver and pure gold. This first-ever Shark Week coin series, available now on http://www.GovMint.com/sharkweek, spotlights three of the oceans’ most formidable predators: The Great White, Scalloped Hammerhead and Tiger Shark.
The government of Australia has authorized the Great White Shark coin, issued in stunning high relief one-ounce gold and silver proofs. Fiji has issued a 99.9% pure silver one-ounce Hammerhead Shark coin, while the Atlantic island nation of Tristan da Cunha is issuing a One Crown denomination Tiger Shark coin in one-ounce of pure silver, a silver-plated copper-nickel coin and a quarter-ounce Gold proof coin. Each of the countries that issue these proofs are no strangers to the powerful sharks in their seas. In fact, all are located near shark-filled waters and represent just some of the many places in the world these sharks can be found.
“We are thrilled to partner with Discovery to bring viewers and collectors worldwide this exclusive offering of Shark Week coins,” said Bill Gale, founder of GovMint.com. “Fans now have the opportunity to savor the thrill of Shark Week with pure precious gold and silver keepsakes that will last for generations.”
