The company says about this coin:

The Mokoha Great White Shark is the second in the Tokelau Fish series of small gold coins. This 0.5g pure gold coins features a fearsome great white shark.

This little masterpiece is the second in the Tokelau Fish series of small gold coins, following the release of the Kakahi- Yellowfin Tuna earlier this year.

The atolls of Tokelau are home to a myriad of fish and the Tokelauans take a strong stand to protect their fish life. In 2011 they declared their entire EEZ (Exclusive Economic Zone) as a shark sanctuary - providing sanctuary for up to 30 species of shark. How fitting then to have the Great White Shark - Mokoha in the local language, feature as part of the Tokelau Fish series.

The great white shark (Carcharodon Carcharias), also known as the great white, white pointer, white shark or white death, is a species of large lamniform shark which can be found in the coastal surface waters of all the major oceans. The great white shark is often a terrifying sight if seen off popular beaches and surfing resorts and is responsible for the largest number of reported and identified fatal unprovoked shark attacks on humans.

Growing up to a mighty 6.4m in length (although some reports have been reported of sharks over 8m in length) and weighing over 3 tonnes, its said they can reach speeds of over 50km/hour. They can live for over 70 years and have no natural predators apart from Orca. The global population of great white sharks has been declining to the extent that it is now classed as a Vulnerable species by the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) and by Australia. They are fully protected within the New Zealand fishing range and were listed in California's Endangered Species Act in 2013.

This diminuitive coin from Tokelau shows a fearsome great white shark with a silhouette of smaller fish in the background. Weighing in at 0.5g pure gold, this is a shark you can conserve forever as part of your coin collection!
