The design on this beautiful new coin shows a Queen Triggerfish swimming above a coral reef. The obverse of the coin features the exclusive Pobjoy Mint Effigy of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen Triggerfish has specialised membranes which are utilised to produce a throbbing noise which warns other fish to keep away. The big oval-shaped fished is so called due to its special spinal columns on its anterior dorsal fins which are utilized to lock the fish into a crevice throughout the night. The very first spinal column locks and the 2nd spinal column opens, like a trigger.

The queen triggerfish's habitat usually consists of coral and rocky reefs in depths between 10 – 100 ft in and around the areas of In the western Atlantic, it ranges from Canada to southern Brazil, and in the eastern Atlantic it is found at Ascension, Cape Verde, Azores and south to Angola.
