To celebrate International Shark Week, Pobjoy Mint has released a new Yellow Titanium coin featuring the Great Lemon Shark on behalf of the British Virgin Islands.
 
Most people are very curious about lemon sharks due to their colour. They are basically loners but they sometimes form small groups. They have been known to attack people from time to time. It is believed this is done out of fear and not aggression. There have only been 22 reported lemon shark attacks on humans with each person surviving.
 
They have a magnetic sensor in their nose that allows them to attract prey and to find others to mate with. They depend on this sense of smell because they have very poor eyesight. Without that sensor they would have a very hard time surviving.
 
The coin has been produced in Yellow Titanium and is also available in Cupro Nickel and Proof Sterling Silver. Titanium is exceptionally difficult to strike. Because of the way the coloured Titanium reacts when struck, 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. 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.
