Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the release of the first coin in a stunning new 50p series of five coins featuring the Turtles of the British Indian Ocean Territory. The first coin in the series of five coins features the Green Turtle.

The green sea Turtle will grow about 120 cm in length and weighing around 135-160k, the name comes from the green fat found beneath its carapace.

The Green Sea Turtle will travel long distances between feeding grounds and hatching beaches, it’s estimated that 1,000 females nest annually on the protected beaches of the British Indian Ocean Territory. This species is also listed as endangered. Sea Turtles are paramount to the many species whose survival is dependent on a healthy seagrass bed and coral reef.

The design on the coin itself features a Green Turtle swimming in the ocean. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint exclusive effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is available in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish with the Turtle portrayed in colour.
