A terrifying predator, the Nile crocodile relies on ambush tactics to make its kill. The massive size of the crocodile means it cannot run down its prey on land. Instead, it uses the cover of murky freshwater bodies across the continent to sneak up on its prey. Although the crocodile’s massive frame makes overpowering its prey easy, it can only sustain a short burst out of the water.

The key to the success of the crocodile’s ambush tactics, beyond its massive strength, is its ability to sustain jaw pressure for long periods of time. The conical shape of a crocodile’s teeth enable it to lock in its grip, and when taken together with the high levels of pressure its jaw can sustain for long periods of time, it can drag prey such as zebras and water buffalos underwater and keep them there until the animal drowns. Once in the grip of a Nile crocodile, it is all but impossible to loosen that grip.

On the obverse of 2021 1 oz Silver Solomon Islands Animals of Africa Nile Crocodile Shaped Coins is a depiction of Queen Elizabeth II. This effigy of Her Majesty originated at the Royal Mint of England in 1998 when it was designed by Ian Rank-Broadley. The Queen’s effigy is set on the jaws of the Nile Crocodile Shaped coin, with the serial number at the center of the torso and the weight, purity, and metal content inscribed along the tail on the left.

The reverse face of 2021 Silver Solomon Islands Animals of African Shaped Coins depicts the first creature in the series, the Nile crocodile. The Nile crocodile is Africa’s largest freshwater predator. The average adult male reaches a length between 1.5 and 16.4 feet and can weigh as much as 1,650 lbs. The largest recorded Nile crocodile was 20 feet in length and weighed around 2,400 lbs.

These 2021 1 oz Silver Solomon Islands Animals of African Nile Crocodile Coins are shaped just like the croc it represents. The creature-shaped coin is housed in a square acrylic capsule with a black presentation box holding the coin and capsule. The packet includes photographs of the Nile crocodile and its habitat on the cover. Each coin has reverse-proof visuals that include mirrored design elements and frosted fields. The serial number on the coin matches that on the included Certificate of Authenticity.

Is my information secure?

We take data security very seriously. When you place an order with silver.com, your information is transmitted with the utmost SSL (secure socket layers) 256-bit protection. We also never have access to your credit/debit card details, as they are securely communicated directly to the payment processor (Authorize.net) and never retained by Silver.com. For this reason, we also don't process credit/debit card orders over the phone, as it is the least secure way to process those transactions.

In addition, all VISA and MasterCard orders undergo an additional step of user authentication - the respective Verified by VISA or MasterCard SecureCode programs. Upon completing checkout with a VISA or MasterCard credit/debit card, you may be promoted for additional details to confirm your identity and protect our customers against credit card fraud.

Finally, the data we do retain in our system, including but not limited to name, address, phone number, and order history, is never shared with or sold to any unrelated third-parties. Please review our Privacy Policy for full details on our data security measures.

Do you charge sales tax?

We are required to collect sales tax in certain states. You can review your states sales tax policy here: https://www.silver.com/taxes. You should always consult with a tax adviser for specific advice in your area.

Where does your spot price come from?

We use a live, up-to-the-second spot price feed supplied by Xignite.com, a worldwide leader in the data supply market.

Are your products actually in stock?

Yes. We are one of the few bullion dealers in the industry who only deems products "in stock" when we have them on-hand and ready to ship immediately. In the instance of a presale item, we denote that the product is on presale and the estimated shipping date. While we make the best efforts to hit presale dates, the dates are only estimates, given we cannot control mint production issues and/or carrier dealyes.

Why are multiple prices listed?

We offer a 4% discount to "cash" paying customers - with paper check, bank wire, and bitcoin payments being defined as cash. On many products, we are also able to offer volume discounts to customers purchasing large quantities of the same item. All volume pricing is laid out in the chart on the product's description page, as well as in the cart.

When do I lock in my price?

All prices are locked in at the time of purchase. Credit/debit card, PayPal, BitCoin, Ethereum, and Ripple orders are paid at the time of checkout, while paper check and bank wire orders require a credit/debit card on file to lock in your pricing while we await your payment. Please note, paper check and bank wire orders will NOT result in a charge to your card - we simple maintain the card on file while we await full payment by your selected payment method.

Do you ship internationally?
