The Megalodon Shark

Roaming the oceans 3 to 16 million years ago, the Megalodon Shark was the largest predator in vertebrate history.

 

This 2017 coin depicts this prehistoric shark with mouth wide open. To the left of its mouth, a diagram showing the Megalodon's jaws compared to the average human.

A rim of razor sharp teeth finish off this design!

 

This design was created to celebrate Discovery Channel's 2017 Shark Week.
