The Lemon Shark is a species of large shark is a stocky and powerful animal which are 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.
