New Ocean Predators features Mako Shark

OCEAN PREDATORS - MAKO SHARK 1 oz Silver Coin

New Zealand Mint is thrilled to introduce the fifth new coin release in the popular Ocean Predators Coin Collectiondesigned to capture the energy and power of some of the most deadly predators of the ocean.

The Shortfin Mako Shark, may be found in oceans around the globe. The name ‘Mako’ originally came from the Maori language of New Zealand, meaning either ‘shark’ or ‘shark tooth’. This apex predator is a brilliant metallic blue in colour with a distinct white underside, allowing it to camouflage itself when hunting.  Prey may include fish, other Sharks, Sea Turtles, Seals, and even Sea Birds. A Mako Shark will hunt from below, before lunging vertically upwards to tear chunks off their prey before they have even been noticed.

The Ocean Predator - Mako Shark 1 oz Silver coin features the dramatic engraved image of a Mako Shark with mouth open wide to seize its prey and coming through a porthole border design.

This dynamic Mako Shark 1 oz Fine Silver coin would appeal to those who are interested in animal wildlife or enjoy traditional coin collecting.
