2021 Star Dreaming - The Shark in the Stars 1/2oz Silver UNC

Torres Strait Dauareb elder, Segar Passi’s shark artwork is inspired by seven stars in the big dipper and big bear (Ursa Major) constellation which make up the body of a deep-sea predator.

The shark’s position in the sky indicates when to plant crops and the timing of seasonal storms. Stardreaming is a three-coin series that showcases indigenous astronomical stories.

As Melanesian sea-faring people, Torres Strait Islanders are custodians of country that spans 48,000 square kilometres of water and 250 plus islands including 14 that are inhabited.

Their culture stretches back an estimated 8000 years, when at the end of the last Ice Age sea levels swamped the land bridge connecting Papua New Guinea and Australia.

As the third release in the series, and with a small mintage of 5000, this coin is sure to sell out.
