APMEX and Australia's Perth Mint debut the second 1/2 oz Silver coin in the APMEXclusive(R) Shark Series

OKLAHOMA CITY, April 8, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- APMEX and the world-renowned Perth Mint announce the latest APMEXclusive® Silver coin for Perth Mint's Shark Series: the limited mintage 2015 1/2 oz .999 fine Silver Australian Hammerhead Shark Coin.

The series began with much acclaim in 2014 with the release of the Great White Shark on a 1/2 oz Silver coin. This newest release, featuring one of the most unique sea creatures, the great hammerhead shark, is sure to follow suit to the praise. The solitary, strong-swimming apex predator is easily recognized by the vast majority of people around the world because of the distinguishing shape of its "hammer" and by its tall, sickle-shaped dorsal fin.

The coin's eye-catching design is a true compliment to the series. The reverse design features the iconic beast navigating through the ocean in great detail. Struck from .999 fine Silver the coin also displays The Perth Mint's traditional 'P' mintmark, along with the 2015 date and Silver weight and purity. The coin's obverse bears the Ian Rank-Broadley likeness of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II and the monetary denomination.

Despite high demand, mintage of these unique Silver coins will be strictly limited to only 300,000 coins. And since it is an APMEXclusive®, the only place to get it is www.APMEX.com. The coin's 1/2 oz size gives it a great price advantage over other Silver coins and the fact it is part of a series with a lower mintage means collectors will be interested as well.

"We're proud of the coin we're bringing to this special series," APMEX Vice President of Merchandising Andrew Martineau said. "We're honored to partner with The Perth Mint. They hold the same values of providing exceptional and distinguished items to our customers."
