16 g, (Cu/Ni) Colourful Creatures - The Shark

Just like certain nocturnal species, the animals featured on the 12 extraordinary coins in our new Colourful Creatures series become active at night − by glowing in the dark. The series has special appeal for children, who can enjoy the coins long after they have gone to bed, but we believe it is going to prove popular with animal lovers and coin collectors of all ages.
