Description

This unusual coin is considered a Piedfort, meaning that it is twice the weight and twice the thickness of the 1 oz Turtle while retaining the same diameter.

The Hawksbill turtle (Eretmochelys imbricata bissa) is one of two main turtle species of the South Pacific. Although they have a wide distribution throughout the world's tropical regions, Hawksbill Turtles are considered critically endangered due to human fishing practices. They grow up to a metre in length and a weight of 80 kg, although the heaviest on record weighed 127 kg.

The reverse features a Hawksbill Turtle with a stylized shell pattern swimming through the waters of the Pacific Ocean along with an engraved heading and the coin's metal quality and weight.

This coin now features radial lines on both sides as a security feature.

In multiples of 10 these coins will ship in a tube, and multiples of 200 will ship in a monster box. The coin you receive may be tarnished or in used condition.
