The fourth coin in the collection features the Checkerboard Wrasse, named after its distinctive pattern. The design on the coin features an adult Checkerboard Wrasse swimming along coral reefs.

The Checkerboard Wrasse (Halichoeres hortulanus) is also known as the marble or hortulanus wrasse. They undergo a fairly dramatic transformation in colouring as they age. As juveniles they are white with stripes, dots, and patches of black. With maturity, they become silver with a black checkerboard pattern on the body. The dorsal fin and tail are yellow, and the face is light green with orange to pink striped markings.

They are also able to change sex during their lifetime. They are all born as females and dependant on social cues are able to change into males. Usually in any given area there are numerous females and a single male. If the male disappears for any reason the largest female in the area will usually change into a male.

The Checkerboard Wrasse is widespread throughout the tropical and subtropical waters of the Indian Ocean. The British Indian Ocean Territory alone covers a total area of 44 square kilometres but the territorial seas cover over 60,000 square kilometres containing coral reefs.

The coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with the Checkerboard Wrasse portrayed in full colour really bringing its pattern to life. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.
