The 2017 Pacific Green Turtle Cupro Nickel Coin Coin Quality

Pacific Green turtles are one of the most renowned animals that swim the sea and to celebrate this beautiful animal Pobjoy Mint is producing a limited issue of Titanium and Cupro Nickel coins. The coin depicts a set of turtles swimming in unison with the sun warming their shells. When striking the coins, Pobjoy Mint have actually been able to catch a high level of detail of the shells of the Turtles.

Pacific Green Turtles are a big sea turtle which takes their name from the fat found below their carapace. (Their shells are brown to black of colour) These large migratory herbivores typically occupy shallow lagoons but likewise travel cross oceans in between feeding and nesting grounds.

Among the places Pacific Green Turtles can be discovered nesting is on the beaches of the Chagos Islands and specifically Diego Garcia which belongs to the British Indians Ocean Territory. In between 400 and 800 of these magnificent animals nest every year throughout the Chagos and are well protected. This is most apparent in Diego Garcia where approximately half of the whole island is a protected nature reserve. It is here that the turtles can lay their eggs without the chance of human intervention.

The Pacific Green Turtle's diet changes as it grows. As a Juvenile they are carnivorous however as they develop their diet plan changes to consist of increasingly more greenery and a mature adult are frequently rigorous herbivores. The turtles feeding trips usually last about 5 minutes however they can hold their breath for up to 5 hours.
