The worlds oceans are home to some of the largest animal species living on planet Earth today. Many of these creatures, were they land-based animals, likely would not be able to move, much less survive. A perfect example of this is the whale shark, the largest living species of fish. The whale shark is now the focus of the second coin from the impressive Giants of the Galapagos Series.

When you purchase a 2021 Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Giants of the Galapagos Silver Coin at Provident Metals, you receive an impressive specimen. The coins in this series all have an individual serial number that is reflected in both the included presentation card and on the obverse side of the coin itself. The coins all have a reverse proof visual element, indicating mirrored elements above a frosted field for one-of-a-kind visual contrast. Each coin is individually packaged in its own trifold presentation card that has full-color graphic artwork depicting the whale shark.


Queen Elizabeth II is depicted in right-profile relief on the obverse side of 2021 Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Giants of the Galapagos Coins. The portrait of the Queen shown here was created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley as the fourth-generation effigy for the Royal Mint of England. The design shows the Queen wearing the Girls of Great Britain and Ireland Tiara. The background field includes a variety of coral and other underwater plant life. The inscriptions include Solomon Islands, Elizabeth II, 2 Dollars, and a serial number between 0001 and 2500.


A massive whale shark swims through the waters of the Pacific Ocean in the reverse design of 2021 Reverse Proof Solomon Islands Giants of the Galapagos Whale Shark Shaped 1 oz Silver Coin. The whale sharks frame is colorized with a blue-gray skin tint and is so large that it extends beyond the traditional circular rim of the coin. Its snout and tail fin are featured extending beyond the rim, to be specific. The inscriptions on this side read Giants of the Galapagos Islands and 999.9 Silver 1 Troy Ounce.


The whale shark is one of the worlds largest filter feeders. The shark has as many as 300 rows of tiny teeth in its mouth and 20 filter pads. It uses these teeth and filter pads to filter through water and capture plankton and other fish to sustain its massive weight and length.
