The Great Hammerhead Shark is one of the largest predators in the oceans of the world. A member of the broader hammerhead shark species, the Great Hammerhead is the largest member of the group and can grow to a maximum length of 20 feet. Most Great Hammerheads are found in the tropical and warm, temperate waters of the oceans. They typically inhabit coastal areas, as well as the continental shelf.
Although Great Hammerhead Sharks are apex predators in their habitat range, eating crustaceans, cephalopods, bony fish, and smaller sharks, it is rare that it attacks humans. Interactions between Great Hammerheads and human divers is often of an inquisitive nature, but given the size of these beasts, the sharks should always be respected.
The obverse of 2020 1 oz Solomon Islands Silver Great Hammerhead Shark Shaped Coins features an effigy of Queen Elizabeth II in the center of the shark’s body. This is the fourth-generation Royal Mint of England design created in 1998 by Ian Rank-Broadley.

These coins are reverse proof specimens with frosted background fields and mirrored design features.
