The Lemon Shark is a large, stocky and powerful animal which is often found in shallow subtropical waters. First named and described in 1868, Lemon sharks are not thought to be large threat to humans. The shark’s yellow colouring serves as a perfect camouflage when swimming over the sandy sea floor in its coastal habitat. Lemon sharks feed at night and their diet consists mainly of fish and some crustaceans.


The design on the coin depicts a Lemon Shark surround by a scattered shoal of fish.  The obverse of the coin features an effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II exclusively by Pobjoy Mint.


The coins have been produced in Yellow Titanium and are shipped encapsulated in an acrylic capsule for protection and housed in a stunning red box with a certificate of authenticity.

Titanium is exceptionally difficult to strike and we promote our Titanium coins as being unique as, due to the fact they are difficult to strike and also with the way the coloured Titanium reacts when striking, no Titanium coin is exactly the same.  Also there is a lined effect that is present on the coins which is also unique to Titanium metal. Also available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver. 

Pobjoy Mint aims to dispatch all in stock items within 48 hours.
