Why purchase this 2005 Bi-Metallic Great White Shark GEM Proof?

In 2005 the Perth Mint released a very special limited issue bi-metallic proof to commemorate the Great White Shark, and to celebrate the bicentennial of the return of Captain James Cook after his second Pacific Ocean Voyage. The Cook Islands were named in honor of the courageous captain. The $150 face value bi-metallic proof coin featuring the image of a Great White Shark is struck from 1.5 Troy oz. of .9999 fine gold with an inset of 0.5 Troy oz. of .999 fine silver; a combined weight of 62.225g. The distinctive proof measures 50.30mm in diameter, with a very low mintage of just 500 coins.

Magnificent Bi-Metallic design

The silver inset of the reverse features a Great White Shark breaking through the ocean's surface. The gold border contains a pattern of dorsal fins, along with the inscription "GREAT WHITE SHARK."

The obverse depicts the Raphael Maklouf effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on the silver inset, with the inscriptions "COOK ISLANDS," "150 DOLLARS," "ELIZABETH II," and "2005," on the surrounding gold surface.

GEM Proof in gorgeous original Mint packaging

The 2005 Cook Islands $150 2 oz. Bi-Metallic Great White Shark GEM Proof is beautifully presented in the original Mint packaging; a handsome custom wood collector's case with an individually numbered Certificate of Authenticity. The superbly struck coin is accompanied by a replica tooth from a Great White Shark!

Don't miss the chance to own this unique, incredibly low mintage Bi-Metallic Proof!
