    I am on the fence with these, but who doesn’t love sharks!?

  7. ThesharpNshiny says:

    Shark bait lol! Though I’d like to see more detail coming from the Perth (of the little sharks)

  8. DogSoldier1973 says:

    Lovely coin! Absolutely fantastic close ups!!! Great video 😉 Thanks for sharing Salivate.

  9. Weizenale silver says:

    tried watching this video 4 times and it just doesn’t wanna work.as i watch other no problem…conspiracy it tell ya

  10. Carter says:

    The Perth Mint sold out of the 2014 1oz Kookaburras before we even entered 2014. These coins are a way better investment than silver eagles or maples due to their scarcity. Get in early because they go up in price quicky.

  11. Brucebannerman says:

    Not for me but I am sure that some people out there will sink their teeth into this one!

  12. ToonandBBfan says:

    I have a couple on order from Atkinsons here in the UK.

  13. Silver Colector says:

    Just ordered myself one of these awesome coins 10 minutes ago. Can’t wait!

  14. stackology says:

    Ordered 2 tubes, so cheap, can’t go wrong on these beauties!

  15. Stokjockey says:

    Rock me you little Shark

    Great White – Rock Me

  16. AlmostCirculated says:

    The sharks are a little crude, but I like them…. I bought 6, and 2 of them are milk spotting…. 🙁

  17. Mrs. Silver Peacock says:

    Silver fish got the "black box" I guess his shark had it in his belly when he caught and gutted it! Yeh… Beautiful coin, thanks for sharing!

  18. Gavin Alvares says:

    Not a huge fan. Nice unboxing

  19. Silver Falkon says:

    My tube is nearly filled.

  20. bloodlust0605 says:

    So much for that "Huge Demand" APMEX was expecting LOL. Way too much for a simple 1/2 oz silver coin.

  21. Flipper says:

    Ordered a tube  i heard its mintage is 300.000 i have to wait 3 weeks for my order 🙁
    Awesome coin a nice flipper in the future.

  22. dee silver says:

    I want to be like you when i grow up, you got the hook ups! Another wonderful presentation Salivate! Not sure if im quite ready for another new series, but i may pick of a few. I do wish they were 1oz’s though.   

  23. Silver NewJack says:

    I picked up some of the shark coins . I can’t wait to Look At It for myself.

  24. APMEX says:

    You’re exactly right! It’s the size of the product you order to get our blue box! Thanks for the video! Love those sharks!

  25. Stokjockey says:

    I was a little disappointed that I did not get the KITTY PORN I was expecting in this video with the KITTY sniffing the Great White !!!

  26. Sodthong says:

    Atkinsons now selling these in the UK…happy face.

  27. ThePlanBPill says:

    Yep. Just ordered a tube. Really hoping these gain a numismatic premium in a few years. The series could start to get quite popular.

  28. Silver Cowboy says:

    It seems as if you and Silverfish VT are getting coins from APMEX in advance, good way to promote new merchandise… Not a fan of the design though.

  29. GS Wovoka says:

    Thanks for the video – I saw these and felt they were a little cartoonish.  I normally love Perth Mint coins.  The thing about the GWS is the facial expression.  The frown looks right out of Disney.  I am glad you like it as that is what is really important!  Peace Bro.

  30. MrMonkeySwag96 says:

    That shark coin is badass! The Great White Shark is my favorite Australian animal. It would be nice if the Perth Mint had a platinum Shark series instead of those platinum Platypus coins.

  31. tree003a says:

    look closely at the queens neck, it appears to have four gill slits. after all the queen is one of the biggest sharks in the bowl.

  32. Silver Stackin'14 says:

    Beautiful coins salivate! I saw this video and immediately ordered two of those coins! I mentioned your name too! Thank you, because these coins are stunning.

  33. halfdollar1 says:

    That is a scary looking coin. Please flip it back to the side with the shark;-) thank you for sharing

  34. Silver Poseidon says:

    oh man im deff in on this one.

  35. SilverHunter2013 says:

    thanks for sharing.. might pick up one or two of these just to have some.

  36. ThesharpNshiny says:

    Still very cool additions. I do like that they come in tubes though

  37. cdngreenthumb says:

    Those look fun. Anybody want to ship a tube north to me?

  38. Silver Grabber says:

    Is this coin…like provident zombie series? Like is it part of a series and how long will the series last?

  39. Stokjockey says:

    Jack Russell tearin’ it up !!!  I think he likes Zepplin too !!!

    Great White – Rock Me – The Ritz 1988

  40. MrVegiita says:

    i would have liked the 1 oz denomination better for this coin.  Much nicer when seeing it for real than the picture on the web site.

  41. TheGhostQuarter says:

    I picked up an MS-70 of this coin from PCGS. I’m anxious for it to come in. I do wonder if it was a good buy though as i feel I paid a little too much for it.

  42. Jessica Bixby says:

    Posting as part of  #sharkawarenessday @daysoftheyear! Great video

  43. Mikemike says:

    Why u have this idiot intro

  44. papermoney54 says:

    I like this coin, great video

  45. TheSilverWolf says:

    Man I thought they had just released this coin today. Nice video thank you, any idea what the mintage will be on this? on their website it just says very strictly limited.


    Would love to have a tube of these but I dont shop at apmex. to much hassle for a canadian 😉

  47. GS PrepZ says:
