Pobjoy Mint is delighted to announce the penultimate coin release in the stunning Turtles 50p series on behalf of British Indian Ocean Territory. The fourth coin in the series of five coins features the Loggerhead Turtle.

The loggerhead sea turtle is named after their exceptionally large heads, and is one of the world’s largest hard-shelled turtle with adults measuring between 75cm and 100cm in length, weighing up to 160kg. With an estimated population at 40,000 to 50,000 nesting adult females, the loggerhead is considered a vulnerable species.

Loggerhead sea turtles spend most of their lives in the open ocean and in the shallow coastal waters. They rarely come ashore unless the female needs to construct a nest and lay their eggs. The turtles typically come ashore at night as there is less risk from numerous predators, especially early in their lives. Some of their predators include ghost crabs, oligochaete worms, beetles and amongst others.

Another reason for the female coming onto the shore at night is that the temperature will be cooler, interestingly the temperature of the sand can dictate the sex of the baby turtles with the hotter the sand the higher ratio of females being born

This stunning 50 pence coin features a Loggerhead turtle which is really brought to life with the exquisite colour. The obverse of the coin features the Pobjoy Mint Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. The coin is produced in Cupro Nickel Diamond Finish and will be housed in a blue pouch. A special colour album, which is sold separately, has been designed to house all five coins.
