                This coin is amazing. The shark bite in the coin is something I've never seen before. This is one of my favorite pieces in my collection now. The display case is beautiful and adds to the experience. This is a must have.

                    This was a great gift for my 10 year old grandson who is interested in sharks and other marine predators. This gift was an effective way to encourage that interest.
