Great White Shark
Few creatures strike more fear in humans than the great white shark. In reality, great white shark attacks on humans are rare – and it is even rarer for one of these attacks to be fatal. However, the size of the great white shark and its efficiency as a predator add to the perpetuation of this unnecessary fear. Great whites use their speed and coloring to help them hunt. They search for prey at the surface of the ocean while swimming below. Once they spot a target, they use a burst of speed to bump their prey while simultaneously biting it. They have several rows of teeth that can number into the thousands. As teeth fall out, they are rapidly replaced by those in the row behind them. These sharp, serrated teeth can be devastating. A single, large bite can be fatal.


The reverse of this coin depicts in detail the deadly great white shark accompanied by pilot fish. It also records the year of production: “2016”, the signature of the artist Elise Martinson – on the bottom of the reverse, and the coin’s weight and purity: “One Troy Ounce 99.9 Silver”. The obverse design includes the Ian Rank Broadly effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, as well as the country: “Cook Islands” and date of issue: “2016”, and the piece’s value in Cook Island dollars: “1 Dollar”.
