The 2022 $10 Apex Crocodile & Shark 5oz Silver Proof is a groundbreaking coin and a terrifying tribute to two of the world's most fearsome predators. Boasting a hefty 65mm diameter, this powerful Niue legal tender coin comprises 5oz of 99.9% silver. Imposing, visually arresting and tremendously exclusive, the mintage has been restricted to an adrenaline inducing 500 coins worldwide!

The gold-plated backdrop of this masterpiece is the perfect foil for the menacing central motif, a spine-chilling and majestically detailed portrayal of the terrors of the deep, who threaten to throw the peaceful marine scene into utter chaos… The Great White Shark (Carcharodon carcharias) is one of the most feared creatures on the planet, synonymous with the spine-chilling soundtrack of the hit film Jaws! Speaking of jaws, the great white’s can host up to 300 teeth across several rows - brilliantly portrayed on the MASSIVE 65mm flan! Solitary, and known for their elusive behavior, the Great White Shark is the world’s largest predatory fish and can grow up to six metres!

Cruising along the mysterious depths at about 40km/hr, this fearsome apex predator can propel itself forwards at even greater speeds – at times breaching the water! The Great White has been found all along Australia’s east, south and west coastlines & is a protected species down under. Also standing its ground on the spectacular gold-plated flan is the formidable Saltwater Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), open-mouthed and ready to strike. Every razor-sharp tooth and rough scale is on display in Proof quality perfection. The result? A seriously terrifying montage! Also known as the Estuarine Crocodile, it is the largest reptile in earth. If the sheer scale of this beast doesn’t make its classification exceedingly obvious, it can also be singled out by its broad snout, powerful jaws and heavily armoured body.

Found throughout the tropical regions of Australia, Asia and the Pacific, ‘salties’ are also capable of travelling long distances! Unnervingly, they have been spotted at sea, far from land. Each coin is utterly unique, as well as exclusive, featuring individual edge numbering, beautifully presented, with a matching Certificate of Authenticity. With a mere 500 coins available worldwide we strongly advise you snap yours up now!
